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.

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.

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.

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