Color matched side vent on MR

Anyone have any pics of color matched side vents on melbourne red? Particularly an E90 would be great so I can see the contrast between the red marker and black honeycomb. Thanks!

I just put a MR side gill on my Jerez Black coupe. I'm not a fan of it with an un-tinted lense, it doesn't look right, and the MR seems to have come out far darker than the above pictures.

I'm using a mobile but will post up my picture soon (it's also in my thread called "E92 Side Gills")

Just in my experience I didn't go with a tinted lens and am now regretting it....

Tinted Lenses imho look much better... but then again I'm a huge fan of black and my car is completely black lol

Although you may not be going for the red-black theme, and I know it is none of my bussiness, I could not resist to express my opinion on how good that side gill with tinted lens look. Think about it.

I guess I just don't like things that look overtly aftermarket, which IMO tinted lights do. Maybe if I saw it in person I would change my mind.
