Gloss black front grills and side gills

Gentlemen,
I just sold my beloved '09 E92 335i to my buddy and will be picking up my old man's '12 E92 M3 in a couple of weeks.

I have been researching glossy black grills and gills, and it seems like the two worth considering are by IND Distribution and the OEM BMW Edition ones (please let me know if there are other good options that don't involve painting your stock ones).

What is the general consensus on which is the better option, since they're priced pretty closely?
Anything special about the IND Distribution ones for them to be so close in price to the black chrome M3 edition ones?

Lastly... does anyone remember what discount did IND offer for Black Friday? I wish I'd done this sooner.

Thanks in advance!

I'm considering gloss black grills and gills with color matched reflectors from iND. $390 for all 3 seems pretty good to me.

I wound up picking up the gloss black front grills and side gills from IND.

Turns out that their gloss black stuff is actually color matched with the gloss black trim (Nate explained), so I decided to go for it. If you buy from IND, use their Thanksgiving coupon, since they extended it by a couple of weeks to allow all customers to benefit from it, since many were out of town during the promo (also mentioned by Nate). Code is "Thanks!" for 10% off.

Cheers.
