Although it's hard to tell much about the front grills from the pics, especially on black. You really need to see these IRL. They look very smart.


Cheers.

Bummer, I ordered mine June 9th and they're still "On Order". Not a huge deal, I've got a recovering broken wrist so the install will be tricky anyways. I'm still impatient though

Do you have other items on your order other than these grills? Most likely waiting on other parts.

If not, please pm me your order #.

Question for those who have these grilles: are they worth the switch from the performance grilles? I have the Performance already on...Thanks

Simply = No!

I was expecting these to be more on the gunmetal-chrome side but they are simply gloss black. I know there is a picture posted in here that shows sating chrome vs gloss black.....

If you already have performance grills on, save your money and keep them. The difference is almost impossible to spot.

I switched from performance to satin chrome. I still like the satin chrome better though.

Here are some crappy iphone photos:

Performance grills on the left, Satin Chrome grills on the right.

Thank you for the pictures ...Sure I can tell the difference and I like the satin chrome...by far these are the best pictures to show the difference. When I got the Performance ones I thought they were lacking some shine espicially on the Alpine white...
I'm only 124 miles from Tischer . I will go and see myself

Better call Tischer first. I don't know if they would have any in stock to show you. GL.

I like the satin chrome better too. However, if you already have the performance grills I don't think it's worth it to buy new ones. Just my opinion though.


Cheers.
