Default Gloss black e46 facelift grill

Where can I buy some gloss black grills for my facelift e46. Looking for ones that fit perfectly as seen some that are terrible fit.

Another vote for ssdd motorsport. Just to let you know the grill wasn't part of the facelift, on the M3 they are all pre facelift just in case you end up buying from eBay.

Cheers

Yea I went through the same thing on eBay, ended up with facelift grills, then saloon grills before buying ssdd ones. The grill wasn't part of the facelift so on all ages of the E46 M3, the grill is a pre facelift one.

Cheers

I bought SSDD gloss black pre-FL grilles for my 2003 '53' M3, they fit brilliantly. Bought a pair from eBay that were utter toss beforehand and regretted it - the ssdd ones are the ones to go for.
