"Black Chrome" front grilles on LBB

Hi,

I'm liking the look of the IND black chrome front grilles and I think they would work well on LBB, but can't find a picture of them installed anywhere.

Please can anyone who has these on an LBB M2 post a pic?

Cheers.

Not after black grilles, but Black Chrome IND ones.

Their are pics of an m4 with them on available, but not seem any of them on an LBB M2.

Just my opinion... The black chrome has a lot of brown in it. I think it may stick out (and not in a good way) as looking "off".

I assume it's the same color as the start button bezel they offer. If you'd like a cheap color sample, I'd order one first to see how you like it in person. I have one and decided against using it in my car because it was too brown. It's a cool color... Don't get me wrong, but it's not the typical black chrome I'm used to seeing. It's almost bronze.

Like someone else already said, black chrome is kind of a brownish color. Personally I would just stick to gloss black.

Thanks for the feedback.

The ind pics show it as more of a grey colour on an m4, so good to know that in reality that's not the case.

Black Chrome does have a little brown hue to it.

Here it is compared to carbon and gloss black.

Here are a few pics of my car equipped with the black chrome kit. The brown/bronze hue is a matter of personal preference. I really like it, will be going with similar color wheels also. On a sunny day the chrome really pops.

Agreed. We have black chrome on the IND M2 as well.
