CF of Matte Black Grills on Jerez Blk E90?

Not sure which would look best. I like the look of the matte grills on the jet black car, but wondering if the bluish aspect of the jerez would make the matte black look odd. Any pics and/or opinions would be appreciated.

Well , I went for the matte black on my Jerez Black ,I dont have pics, but both are in order. LOL , but I absolutly hate CF, dunno why, just makes it look... CHEAP?
And it stll is a black car for 70% of the time. When there is a bright light on it, from a certain angle ,it looks blueish.
I think this is a pic. Its here somewhere on this forum, and I think its a JzB

I totally agree... CF in random places... looks a bit trendy & cheap imnsho. It's a cool material... roofs, etc. make sense. Wheels, grills, windshield wipers, roundel, gas cap, etc. just seem out of place to me. But hey, I ordered CF leather trim...

Nice pic... didn't think I wanted to change my grills when my car gets here, but those do look quite nice on JzB. Hmm.

If you have the 18's, it would be neat to have the grilles color-matched with the wheels.

I'd do the matte black for a bit more contrast. Unless you are doing the full CF exterior theme (front lip, rear diffuser and even roof), I think the CF will look a bit out of place.

No way the Matte looks cheap, it really cleans up the front end! Great choice

Nick, didnt say the matte blacks will make it look cheap, im saying the CF will make it look cheap, if you are not going full theme with it.
But Im absolutely an anti-CF guy (for exterior mods)
I got the carbon leather trim tho...
ANd I ordered my matte black grilles, because the things around the windows are also matte black (
