any pictures of black or carbon grills on the X5?

What are you guys thoughts on the black or carbon fiber front grills/hood grills for the X5?

Anyone have them?

I like black grilles on a black X5 but they don't look as good on other colors. I have my grilles painted Steel Gray to match my paintjob. I have not seen CF grilles on an E53.

Check this recent post for a pic of black grilles on a black X5 and my Steel Gray.

I agree black grill looks good on black and grey or silver. You can photochop and see how it looks on blue. How about LeMans blue grills to go with your X5 color? and LeMans blue hood vent grills.

Lemans, what is that behind the lower grills? Is that part of a K40 install or something.

You got some photochop skills there man. the hood vents don't look half bad in blue.

I think I am going to keep my baby the way she is as far as grill color.

That's my black X5 in the link that PNG posted.......so it goes without saying that I like it. Did it myself forever ago. Before black grills were available to buy.

I have black kidney grilles installed in my Imola Red 4.6is and it looks awesome. Tomorrow when it's light out, I'll take a few pictures and post them on here. What color is your X5 liftbig? b

My X5 is jet black. Where did you get yours from? I have read that some are cheap inlays. If I get some I would like them to be good quality.
