Body color side gills?

Other than painting your OEM set or getting a black set and painting them, does anyone know if anyone makes side gills in the body color. I have seen an aw M3 with the gills painted white and I think this looks best. Thanks for the help! I just got my E93 M3, love the car!

I got mine from IND. Melbourne Red reflectors, front kidneys, and side markers with lightly tinted lenses. The paint match is perfect and the customer service is to die for.

Yes

Some people have no problems with them, others (myself included) cursed the heavens trying to get the original gills off. In the end, I gave up and took them to Supreme Power (a local shop) to have them installed. Your mileage may vary.

There's a DIY somewhere on this forum, fwiw.

Did mine. Pretty easy. Search youtube for video of removal process. Found pressing up on bottom of gills and pinching to be easiest. Mine look nice. Ordered from JLevi. Really adds to the car! Sorry a little dirty! ;(
