Black chrome by a big margin. IMHO, the matte one looks really cheap

As far as I know, BMW never did make them for the pre LCI E90 M3's.

Gloss looks better but the Matte hides dirt and nics as time goes by.

Look at Post# 3 here........

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...hlight=edition

Apparently there a mod that involves removing the cup and it fits the pre-LCI E90. What I not sure about is, do you remove the cup off a E90 Side Gill or a E92 Side Gill? Or they are infact the same thing just with different part numbers?

I just looked at both the Sedan and Coupe side gills, and the pieces are different. I can't recommend doing this.

Garage List
OEM Performance side gills in glossy black. My car is Frozen Black and look good witht he paint. Blend nicely with the Shadowline trim over the doors. Go with the OEM front grills/side gills.
