Thumbs up

I just purchased a black 04 300Ci ( ) and I don't like the chrome grill. Anyone know of a manufacturer who makes a flat black grill?

Thank you

He got an '04. Maybe got a good price on it. I doubt he would have with a brand new '06 e90

So even tho the Hammerite is for metal, it sticks well to plastic? That's great! I will try that. Thank you

I had to return my lease (540iT) and would have been without a car - an impossible situation in California. I got a sweet deal on the 04 (all scheduled maintenance paid for until 2009) and I love the body style.

Besides, I haven't decided yet if I like the new 3 series body style . . . :wink

Same reason I bought my 2005... still not convinced on the 2006 E90 body, and I got a fantastic deal.
