I have grills, gills, hood vents, ///M3 emblem, and the M5 style mirrors in gloss black on my Space Gray E90. I even replaced a pretty rough looking lower mesh grill with a new one i painted gloss black before installing it. I think it's a perfect look against the gray. The E92 is not nearly as difficult to replace the gills. Use the tape technique found in the DIY. I have pics in the cosmetic mods section.
