fitment of jlevi cf grilles and side gills

initially was thinking just to go with the oem matte black, but came across the jlevi cf grilles and side gills and may have changed my mind...can anyone with first hand experience tell me about fitment, install, and match with the factory cf roof?

I've installed them personally and the fit is about 98% as good as OEM. Nothing aftermarket is going to fit as good as OEM but it's a solid fit, I'm sure you will be happy. In regards to the weave, it's a perfect match.

does the side grill is just a cf cover, or whole replacement of the chrome grille. I can not find such which are total replacement - just the cover with 3M tape...

The side gill that JSW sells is a full replacement.

I have the front CF grills and CF side gills from JLevi. They fit just like OEM. Had the parts for two years already and no issues. You would be happy with them and the prices are good at JLevi.
