Not perfect, but really your only choice for glossy black.

Overall product fits well. As other users have said you will need to cut the grille on the driver's side to make room for the hood latch. I've had them for 4 months now and one of the grilles is starting to disappear, only on the passenger side.

  • High marks for support and durability from testers
  • No performance

does the job. on Body and Trim

Installed on a 2003 330I Sedan. It fits, but the clips are very fragile, you have to be very careful not to break them, up close you can see a small gap around the parameters, but again, I didn't watch the originals. Overall, they feel solid/shiny and serve their purpose.

  • Cool Product
  • Thin

The passenger side is perfect, as is the driver's side. The only problem on the driver's side is that the slats interfere with the hood latch. This can be solved with a Dremel tool to grind the rod right where the latch is. The product looks identical to the OEM factory except for 1 tablet.

  • Sample for one year
  • Expensive

Perfect fit

Perfect fit on my 2003 e46 325i. Very easy to install. When I was looking for a kidney grille, every review said the hood latch didn't work with the grille, but that wasn't a problem for me. They fit perfectly as they should. Didn't have to cut or adjust anything, fits perfectly and hasn't given me any problems and they don't fall out when I close the hood! Buy this 100%

  • Lots of positive emotions
  • Security

Fits great and shines.

Great fit, shiny as described. I only gave it four stars because when you try to lift the hood with the little handle on the BMW 3 Series it catches on the grille and lifts it up a bit, hopefully it doesn't break inside. That being said I think it's a great product for the price compared to dealer OEM grills that charge you $100 per side.

  • Good product for the price
  • So far so good

Almost perfect for the grille

There would be 5 starts in all directions. However, I had to replace the grille where the hood latch pops out. I had to cut a notch in the back of the grille and trim one of the kidney grille pieces so the handle had room to move if you jerked the latch yourself. Strange how this was missed when they could pinpoint exactly where all the locking tabs were. But still worth the price if you're ok with minor modifications.

  • Everything is great!
  • Requires socket

Avoid these kidney grills

I would not recommend these kidney grills, they were easy to install and fit fairly well but not perfect. Initially they were good enough for me, but after a few months of using the car I noticed that one of the kidneys remained glossy black while the other turned ash black. If I spent a little more money I could get a couple of kidney grills, but now I have to buy another set or have the kidney grills fitted to Mitch.

  • practical item
  • Definitely bad product

The fit is perfect and they have a very nice glossy finish

Perfect fit and have a very nice glossy finish which looks much better than matte. As others have pointed out, the driver's side grille lacks a cutout where the hood latch handle folds out when you need to lift the hood (compare the driver's side grille to the existing grille to see the location and size of the cutout) . I was able to cut the hole in 10 minutes and have had no trouble opening the hood since installation.

  • Quality construction
  • New competitors have arrived

Good workmanship good fit

Installation not perfect like the original grilles but overall I'm satisfied. They are only slightly smaller than the originals, so there is some play after installation. However, there is no need to modify the left grille to access the hood latch, as other reviews have mentioned. Apparently the design was changed to fix this problem. I was impressed with the finish and there were no noticeable blemishes on the paint such as dust or dirt. These are probably the best and cheapest gloss black E46

  • Easy to read control panel
  • Upgradable
