Im looking for a wider grille. On the stock grilles the trim is thin but i want the grille that has that wider trim look. If you know where i could those let me know. I dont want the all chrome ones. I'm really looking for the chrome trim but with black teeth. Would this be a problem to install on my 94 325i?

Is that a license plate on the Driver's side? It reminds me of my buddy's old Cavalier that had the license plate in the same spot... n

i don't like the one piece grill. the two kidneys are what make it look like a bmw. carbon fiber one looks sweet tho.

I'm looking for the same thing....I have a '96 328i and would like one closer to the '97-98 grill which has wider chrome trim...could we just use the '97 grill w/o modification? any links?

those wider grills were part of an aesthetic update in the late 90s to the E36. you can probably get them from a body shop or something.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

No, you need the whole 97+ nose panel for it to fit. There's a few kits for the pre 96s that attempt to look wider but still nto what you would get from the later style nose panel.
