Look at realoem.com

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...51&hg=51&fg=15

And you can look up the part nos for various european models. Now getting the part from a US dealer is a problem. If you go to Ireland, It will be easier to by the part from the local dealer and bring it back as luggage.

You must be able to get a swap with a European forum member. Over here the black kidneys are only used on the smaller engined models to differentiate from their more expensive, larger-engined brethren. People here pay to replace them with the chrome ones.

The best BMW con I've seen yet is to offer black window trim as standard, include aluminium on M-sport and then charge extra to change it back to black again. Ker-ching!
