BMW Performance / Gloss Black / Matte Black Kidney and Side Grill

My '09 AW M3 is currently using matte black side and kidney grills. I have CF side mirrors cover, gloss black side mirror holder (not the matte black one), CF VRS Front Lip, Textured Black HRE P40, CF Hood Vents(Coming Soon), Competition Rear Spoiler(Coming soon), and VRS CF Type 1 Rear Diffuser. Should I stick with the matte black kidney grill and side grill or change it to BMW Performance (Chrome Black) or Gloss Black or Carbon Fibre? If I ever change my grill, should I repaint my P40s? and to what color?

I would stick to matte to match the wheels, if you go with gloss for the wheels then I would change the parts to gloss.

I'd try not to change the factory color on the HRE wheels. Post a pic of your car so we can see how it looks now.

If you're really picky you could change to the Chrome Black or the Glossy. Personally, not a fan of the carbon grilles because I've read somewhere that they don't survive the humidity and heat that we get.
