Honeycomb Black Grill

I have been debating about installing the blacked out grill on my SG E92 and as I was looking at the front end of my car, something occurred to me...if there were a matte black honey combed insert for the existing kidney grill (fit inside the chrome kidney grill "frame" or a matte black "frame")...it could (emphasis on could) look a hell of a lot better than some of the other materials I have seen, including the stock verticle grill slats. Specifically it would match the lower, front air intake and the rear diffuser...does this exist? Any after market manufacturing guys up to the challenge?

i havent seen anything like that. I suppose what you could do is buy the lower intake honeycomb piece, then cut it to fit the kidneys. this should be moved to the external mods section though.

i think the vertical lines of the BMW grill is just as important as the emblem... and we are used to the way it looks.. i bet it will look weird if you change it...

As Kingleh stated, you'll be messing with a trademark of BMW.
