Exclamation Has anyone made F30 style grills for E90?

I think the F30 grills look awesome with that thick silver kidney shaped bevel around the entire circumference of the grills.

I am wondering if anyone found an aftermarket part giving it that kind of look, or does anyone know if you would be able to fit an OEM F30 grill on say an older E90 (2006)

We have an F30 and an E90 and the F30 grills are each 1" wider and made to fit with a completely different bumper cover and grill. They are not going to fit without major surgery and the chrome is not that much thicker. Even if grafting an F30 clip might be possible, which I doubt that it is, if you really like the look, getting an F30 is probably easier and cheaper.

Your stock grills are two pieces. Pull them out and separate the halves and then paint the grill what ever color you want and then leave the trim half alone
