chrome window frames can look right, IMO they have no place on a german vehicle like the ones we're talking about. maybe some big V8 luxury cruiser, nothing sporty though

the E90 didn't but the E92 (coupe) did. I find it odd that the sportier version had chrome window frames. BMW came to their senses and don't use it on my beloved F32. Maybe we'll get lucky and the black kidney grilles will be an inexpensive M performance part.

The kidney grills will be approximately $80 each. The carbon fiver accessories are gonna be much more expensive however

$80 each is not bad at all! Sam...you wouldn't happen to have prices on other M peroformace parts such as ppk and exhaust for the 4 series? My dealer hasn't gotten back to me about this.

I got the ppk and exhaust from the factory and it was between 1500 and 2500 I think. I'm not sure about adding it on after purchase though. I imagine it would cost more though. The dealership will probably charge you for shop time. I believe there's a catalogue somewhere online that I found that lists all the prices for 4 series parts. A google search should locate it for you. Hope I helped

You must live in Canada.....BMWUSA lists only 335i performance parts with no prices. Guess we yankees gotta wait a few months.

I've actually seen a few E92 M3s have some discoloring or oxidation issues with the chrome frame. Not very good quality. Thats probably why they went to black.

For an M-Sport 435i, I agree.

However, I think they look quite nice on a 4 series Luxury Line. They fit that mission of a bit more luxury, and some people are looking for that. The 4 series is not a raw sports car after all.
