    After a brief flirtation with taking wbac’s offer and moving on I decided I wasn’t quite finished with the M4, so treated it to some more carbon trinkets :)

    Yeah those grilles are sublime! What’s the wallet damage on those babies?

    I feel I’ve got to the 2 year itch point where I may have to do the odd (OEM) touches to the CS....

    They’re £600 mate but cotswold will knock them out closer to £500

    Good to hear you are going to mod the car

    I agree with the guys comments, the car is looking really smart mate. The extra touches make it your own. :thumbsup:

    As Hitesh says It keeps the passion alive!

    Really loving the grills, are they as above the OEM options?

    As suspected, the grilles are aftermarket, I took a punt on them as I usually don’t bother with cheaper alternatives but really very happy with them! They’re exactly the same as the ones supplied by carbonwurks and SSDD but bought from source.

    Best way to buy OEM carbon fibre grilles is off Scott - just wait 5mins for another car fleet rotation and snatch a deal on the surplus good as new add ons - I did and feel the OEM CF grills are an absolute must have (Quality item that finishes off the front end imo) !

    I’m so happy with them, hard to find fault apart from the weave isn’t just quite oem:)
