Little Problem

So I ordered the black kidney grill from Stealth Auto for my 328is. I tried putting them on today and my stock grills came out just fine. But when I tried putting in my new grill they seemed far too big. Has anyone here ever put these in? If so is there more than one size and they sent me the wrong ones?

*edit* Heres a link to the site:

Well I ordered the 92-96 style. I called the customer service and they told me they shipped out the right ones.

Just looked at Realoem.com and your 96 328 takes a different part# grill than my 98 328. I keep hearing about pre face lift cars, not sure what that means but it could be the reason your new grills don't fit.


Cosmos schwartz metalic Sparco strut brace factory X-brace 55w 6000k HID w/LED angel eyes smoked Lamin-X blacked out sidemarkers,tails and brakelights. DDM smoked corners and pedals. 35% tint all around, Prosport water temp and oil pressure gauges, Home Depot lip, M3 rear diffuser ASC-T delete.

In the first picture, if the one on top is the new one, and the one on the bottom is the old one, you have a post-facelift E36 and you should have ordered the later grills.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.
