Black Grills

Post by Jay23 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:42 pm

Hi all, picking up my new M2 in a week and have a noob question. I’m wanting to get the back front and side grills. Can someone please point me in the right and most cost effective direction please.

I understand you can buy the 240 grills and switch the black bits round but I want to ensure I 100% buy the right part. I have been scouring eBay but it’s a bit of a minefield of non genuine parts.

If there are any other little bits and bobs people would recommend picking up to smarten it a touch I am open to suggestions. In fact one thing I am interested in and might sound slightly odd but how does everyone keep their fobs in decent nick? While my current (135) fob isn’t nakered I really want to protect this car as much as possible.

Any help and suggestions welcome.

Stuart Murray at Harry Fairbairn in Kirkcaldy - £160 delivered for the side badges and 2 series black grilles (you just use the surround as it's far cheaper than buying M2 grilles).

For reference, I had mine fitted by the dealer before collection and that was £240. So you can save yourself £80 if you want to put the time in yourself.

Dealer supplied and fitted my M2 ones at delivery matched the Fairburn price and fitted free, couldn't be bothered with faffing swapping surrounds around for sake of a few quid.

If he's not there one of his boys will sort you out, just tell them the price people have paid!
