    I have but not for a M3. If your interested I can post before and after pics. Mine is a 2006 E90 very different grill. Oh mine are BMW parts also not aftermarket.

    I replaced the grills, Finishing Rods and the hood pieces of the grill that some people call the mustache. The finishing rods are the thin pieces in the lower openings that run from fog light to fog light. I almost left the chrome mustache on but after trying one of the blacks ones it was a must! Sorry for the cruddy photos. Hopefully this will help you out!

    It looks really good! glad it worked out for you! It does transform the car into something more aggressive, ready to pounce!

    A black grill in the roadster?

    I might seriously consider a black grille in the roadster. . . but I gouged the paint when I pulled it out to mount the BMW CCA badge, and I'm never going to pull it out again! :eek:
