Installed titanium grills. Wasn't sure at first - but after getting them both in it really lifts the look of the front end.

Got it, thanks!

I'm sort of warming up to titanium kidneys on silver (my truck is silver too). I may try them soon, probably with black surrounds though.

Hope the bumper issue gets sorted soon, looks like that will need to be $$$ replaced, ugh.

Noice!!

Titanium looks really snazzy on the darker colored cars, and matches your silver sports package mesh nicely.

Thanks fellas. Today I threw 25mm h&r spacers on the back and a set of 10.5 rears on the front. Muhahahahaha. It looks mean as fuu - can't wait till my eibach and bilstein arrive - 40mm should compliment nicely.

I love the titanium! Considered painting mine black, but haven't, just really like the front end with them...

I gave up on the idea of replacing the radiator with an all aluminium unit, could purchase FIVE OEM Behr rads for the $1000 cost of one Zionsville unit!

Ordered from AutohausAZ, Behr OEM rad ($211), genuine BMW lower rad hose ($40) and genuine BMW cooling fan sensor ($39). No tax and free shipping, $290 total.
