So after my son backed into my 740il

My front grill is toast. My low beam burned out. His Jeep is fine ( of course).
I took off the broken chrome rings around the grills and I think I like the all black look, better than with the chrome. I took off the damaged water shooter thingys for teh headlights, as they were trashed also. I'll either get new ones or put 410 shotgun shells in the holes (jk).
Man I tell ya, replacing the halogen bulb was difficult as heck! I had no room to maneuver my banana hands around in teh crampt quarters.

Uhhh...if the universe is still expanding, WTF is it expanding into?

I was able to JB Weld teh grill back together ( temporary ) but after looking at it without the chrome it looked a little meaner....I would still have to replace the grills, but I'm thinking of leaving them black.
Opinions are free and welcome!!!
