Something a little different. What do you guys think?

I decided to try the matte grilles but retain the stock chrome ovals on my IB coupe... what do you guys think?

ps. please no comments about the license plate holder holes in my bumper unless it's someone offering to fix it professionally for dirt cheap

As a fellow IB owner, I think it looks great, especially in that last picture. I must admit I don't like the black matte or carbon fiber ovals on IB, but this looks nice and subtle.

I haven't seen any IB with all black, but I held it up to mine and just didn't look right... something about the chrome ovals tying the headlights together... anyone have pics of the black installed? I was too lazy to try it both ways and didn't think I'd like it anyway.

Man, my 1 week old AW M3 is rolling around like yours with the 4 god damn holes in the front bumper too . I don't wanna put the plate back, but I don't want to get the bumper completely repainted to fix it. One dude told me to just rub some white Dove soap on it to fill it up. What do you plan to do? Also I agree with keeping it simple, all matte or leave it stock.

Looks good

Hey Chuck,

Great seeing you last night. I like it. I like contrast and have never really liked the murdered or monochromatic look, so keeping the chrome helps keep a little definition between the hood/bumper and the grills. Good call. It's also a bit unique. I don't remember seeing anyone do this before. Obviously the installation was pretty easy.

Bob

Looks good. This is an easy mod, so if you get bored of it, change it out.

Get some color matched bumper plugs.
