what do you guys think? black kidney grilles or not?

just wanted to see what everyone's opinion is on the black kidney grilles..... should I or should I not? my E92 will be AW with the 18s so I think the darker front end will be complimented a little bit more with the black grilles.... whatcha think?

+1 look good on any color IMO. Don't get CF, CF for non structural components is a poseur to me.

I do believe the CFs available are slightly grey-ish in tone.

No way! I like CF for non functional "trinkets". I have some CF and machined aluminum cup holders!

Well, if you have a CF splitter, roof and diffuser together with a Vorsteiner CLS style boot lid with a bit of exposed CF, then the grill may look really nice.

Don't like the black wheels, don't like the CF hood but maybe the grilles may look well with the CF lip, roof and diffuser! I have the grilles for free, so I can just change them to see how it looks and off if I don't like them.
