I don't think it would look good. Currently I have black mesh where my fog lights are on my e34. It looks OK up close but then again I also swapped out some of my lower grill panels from a 540i to make it look like the grill is wider. Cost about $20. $10 for mesh (RIP OFF!).

Don't do it.

don't got for mesh unless if it's to protect an intercooler, aftermarket mesh grills are just not for bimmers.

not for BMWs IMO...it looks good on a big mouth body kit of some kind on a Civic or Integra, but not on a classier BMW

All I know is if you do do it, don't pay for 20 bucks for a kit. Go to a your local hardware store and get gutter mesh. It's metal, easy to cut with some snips, you can cut it to the right size and it's $1.89 for a 3 feet of it.

I HAVE ONE!!!!!!

I havn't taken a pic yet but might do very soon. I have to say it looks great, definitely worth it. My mesh is black.

Looks cheap, here's an M3 with chicken wire style mesh from umnitza.com, looks out of place.
