Default First mod...new grill

Well I think that finishes off the Brilliant Black pretty nicely...a bit better than the chrome one I think and leaves just enough there to put a nice touch of chrome to it.

Very nice!

If I had a garage, I would get a black like your.

Yes! I wish they had a black optic package for the sq5. I'm gonna get a black one and want to do this and the trim. Did you just buy that grill?

More details? Guess I don't follow. Just a remove and replace with the OEM black optic part.

I'll post up the PN tomorrow.

This is the same part number for the grill on the prestige slate model as well that the dealer provided me with when I inquired

Very nice. Did you swap the grille out yourself? Was it easy? I've heard you need to remove the bumper to swap the grille, is that true?

I might consider replacing the fog light grilles to eliminate the chrome there as well. I found mine using Google for like $30 per side.
