Hey guys, it\'s been a little boring here in Buffalo with all this f-in lake effect snow. I was screwing around on ebay and i bought a couple pieces of aluminum grille mesh with intentions to design an upper and lower grille for my 3. So after a little cutting and designing, this is what i came up with. Tell me what you guys think.....

The picture is too big to upload, heres my webpage.....

silver mesh=rice!
Paint it black!

And doesnt the fact that the top grill doesnt fit right bother you? IMO, put in the OEM grill and put mesh in behind that....

Yeah, i know it doesn\'t fit flush. In the process of trying to solve that problem. I have to agree though, it does look a little ricey. I was just trying something different. Your right though I have been thinking about putting it behind the original grille, i think that will look a lot better.....Thanks for your opinion.....:sarc

I\'ll give you an \"A\" for effort, but personally I don\'t like it. The stock grill by itself looks better IMO.

As much as I hate agreeing with everyone else, it looks a little out of place. As well, the openings in the mesh are a little too small for for my taste, but I do agree that if it was painted balck it\'d look like it went with the car better. If your car was any other it wouldn\'t look too bad, but in my opinion the silver clashes with the grey.....
