Allright, I will capitulate and put on the blk fender grills, must match the blk Monobloks that I put on too. Blk kidney grills next, looks too good on AW w/blk interior.

After the whole debate, now when you get the matte black grills it comes with both the monochrome and the //M traditional. So no need to choose one or the other.

that's how i got mine ...

the only thing I would recommend is to pre-drill the wholes for the screw a bit and make them bigger ... otherwise grilles just crack ...
