Tri Color Kidney Grills
 
Did the google and couldnt find what I was looking for. Does anyone have a pic of the ECS gloss black grills w/ri color slats on a facelift hellrot M3?

Looks like ECS makes these versions, but not the non-tri color gloss blacks for 1997+ facelift cars. Trying to decide if I will like the tri colors or not and how close the red on the slat is to hellrot from the front.

I tried to find some hellrots and photoshop the slat in, or tri color cars and photoshop hellrot on, but my attempts were garbage.

Does anyone else sell just the gloss black facelift kidneys, in case I dont like the tri colors?

Thanks

I would just paint your stock kidneys. I think the tri color looks tacky personally.

I can appreciate your opinions on the look, but that's not the purpose of this thread. I was looking for pics of a red car with the tri color grills and also a link to glossy black grills for sale b/c ECS doesnt carry them.

There are lots of stuff on ebay, but Im very hesitant on ebay as some of the stuff Ive gotten is quite inferior.

What makes you think ECS offers anything different than eBay? It's all made in China. If you look closely at the picture you will notice the bare metal where the OE kidney, properly sized, wore away the paint. I'd say the China kidney is made wrong.

just for reference braymond is correct. My car came with the regular black ones from ECS and they didn't fit correctly and sat crooked. When i went to remove them for reinstall the stock ones they simply fell apart from broken cheap plastic. If you really want them done then DIY using the stock kidneys.

If you must have it, DIY paint OEM grilles
