Pic Request: Jet Black with Black Performance Grills

I'm trying to figure out if this would be too much black! I think it would look cool though. Thanks!

There's a few pics on here.

I'm not too sure if these are Jet black, but they do have the performance grills on them.

Figured I might as well post the links:

X1 belonging to member "superbogel":


X1 belonging to member "Twix":



And here's a thread on the black performance grills, though none of the these X1s are black: http://e84.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=767286

Personally, I think it would look good! Definitely not overkill. As long as you either leave your wheels the stock finish or get aftermarket silver/gunmetal finish wheels, it will look sweet.

Wow, mine is a 2014 also, and it definitely did not have that.
No I haven't. I think I may need to.

After detailing our new E84 yesterday, I agree that the performance grills are a nice compliment to the overall look of the base line since the trim around the grills are the only "chrome" accents on the exterior. For about $100, it's a no brainer mod but would like to see a good DIY on swapping out the grills. Any help here?

Works for me since we're home brewers!
