BMW’s Edition series was by far one of the most popular looks for the E9X M3 cars, offering a depth and complexity that was impossible with normal painted gloss black grilles. The Edition grilles featured a “black chrome” appearance – glossy chrome sheen without the glare and dark enough in color to complement BMW’s window trim and glazing.
BMW has not offered this finish for the newer chassis, so our paint technicians at IND have spent considerable effort in creating our own version of this beautiful finish. Our finish has been developed in-house with a proprietary process that has not been used previously, outside of IND. We’re excited to offer this finish for the E46 M3 front and side grilles.
The IND E46 M3 Black Chrome Front Grille sets are painted in house utilizing an OEM core as a base.
Enjoy the photos we’ve taken of the grilles below!
