370 of that was driving it home though.

Black grills not available anywhere it would seem.

Been told the 2021 car has been slightly modified and that versions of the black grills for the 2020 model are not compatible with our car :evil:

If anyone knows anything more about this, I'd love the info.

Thanks
If Black grills are still available on M235i in other countries, I don’t see what the problem is. Also have you check on BMW accessories website? under M Performance I think. It’s available on there.

Or

Try giving Knights BMW Stafford Part department a call.

It was knights who told me they can't get them.

It would appear that some modification has been made to the car, that prevents the 2020 grills being fitted apparently.

Couldn't get more info out of anyone than that

That's wired. Looks like its disappeared of the BMW accessory website as well.

So is your car a 2021 built?

Yeah, 2021 build.

Only collected it last week.

Grills are not an option for the car on the BMW website when entering the chassis number.

I got my black grill replaced only 3 weeks ago after it got damaged by my detailer, so they were still available then.

What model year is your car?

If its a 2020, they are available for them, just not for 2021 builds as apparently they've been modified with some air flap thing

That would be why then, my car was a November 2020 build.

I have the BlackVue DR750s-2CH installed and hardwired with Power Magic Pro in my car. Works a treat!

Independent place nr Glasgow. They do a lot of BM's and Mercs. They can supply everything or you can just bring along your own.

Would be interesting to see how big the difference is between my model and the K4 one.

Cameras installed and the guys did a really good job. All cables hidden and battery pack installed under passenger seat.
The 4k resolution is damn good on playback.
Most useful feature is the phone notification you will get if an 'incident' occurs when you are parked and you can see the video clips recorded and/or look at the live feed from the cameras.

Is your camera connected to their Cloud service? or Do you have a SIM card in your dash cam?
