yea, i only found the kidney grills but not the side grills, that's why the title says side grills. So not sure if they have it.

I'm sure I've seen it someone had them on his M3 before, and I remember it was very pricey.

The BMW Performance Grills are gloss black on the outside with matte black gills.

To my knowledge, BMW does not sell the side gills (please correct me if I'm wrong as I am also in the market for gloss black side gills).

This is an easy DIY... Or take stock pieces to a body shop. Can't be more than $40 to paint them.

My primary concern with painted ones is the color matching with the oem performance grills or possible flaking which i highly doubt.

My research on this forum indicates that IND is the way to go for gloss black side gills.

Alternatively, consider the BMW Satin Black Chrome grills and side gills that are on the M3 Edition and GTS. Info here:
