BMW Performance Black Kidney Grille for 2011 M3 CV

I bought the BMW Performance Black Kidney Grille for my 2011 M3 CV and tried to install them today but the clips on the new grille don't match with the bumper holes, the clip on the outside of the grille (closest to the headlight) is off the hole, I don't know if BMW sent me the incorrect grilles, maybe they belong to a previous model, anybody with a 2011 M3 has these grilles installed? can anybody let me know the correct P/N for these grilles? the P/N they sent me are as follows: 51712158985 and 51712158984 (see attached pictures)

IMG: finally got the correct P/N and installed them today, they look nice, see some pictures
Thanks again for helping me providing the correct P/N
By any chance do you know if BMW sells the black moldings (doors and back window), I want to get rid of all chromes that came with my car, also need to buy the black side gills, do you know where I can get them?

I like the black grill on every color m3 EXCEPT black. It's too much black. To me, black cars need contrast. Contrast in the grills, windows not having tint, no black wheels. Unless you are a rapper then go for it

Black grills look great. I have edition chrome on my jetblack which look good as well.
