Anymore pictures of this car?

Sorry to thread bump. About to drop my e90 m3 off to have the grills/gills painted gloss black. Quick concern.

Do I leave the grill slats in the kidneys the matte OEM unpainted plastic, or paint them gloss black too? Im leaning towards just painting the outside ring gloss black, but I'm having trouble remembering whether or not edition grills replace the slats with black chrome, or stay matte. Let me know people who've done this mod pleaseeee

Inner portion of the slats are matte, but the face of them is glossy.

I got gloss black and it tied in with the rest of the cars exterior bits and pieces. I can see the matte looking good too if you do everything like mirror caps, side markers, hood vents etc all matte. If you go grill matte and mirror caps gloss that inconsistency may not look good.

Im going to pitch IND for all this stuff I just recently worked with Nate at IND and bought a ton of stuff. Their packaging is amazing, each piece I bought was wrapped in a towel and then bubble wrap!!! Service is quick and they have excellent customer service. They will also answer all your PM questions with complete answers, not three word "I don't care, give me your money" answers like I have experienced with others.
