Body colored side-grilles from IND

I purchased the IND painted side grilles for my M3 a while back but didn't have time to put them on. I finally installed them today. Quality and paint match is great and I love the new look of the grilles. Pics to follow.

I used some plastic wedge trim tools and some old credit cards to pop those out.

Looks great. I got a set from Nate@IND too, good service.
I have not installed them yet, they look like a PITA to get off though.

Install is not that easy but you can always take them to a local body shop. Our guys here at the shop can get them in and out very easy now.

New pics look great. Gotta say the only down side is IND's Paint quality is better than our Orange peel BMW's

Don't know if anyone would actually be willing to replicate that

Agreed, IND color matches "perfectly"! They matched my BW which is not so easy.

Props to IND!


Here are a few pics!

Thanks! BW is one of the best looking colors I have ever seen. We are going to be painting a full M3 Race car BW now after seeing this color in person
