Makes sense, thanks!

So I get a call from my BMW guy that the black grille has arrived and that I can come along and get it fitted whenever I'm free.

Totally unexpected, since the news was that it was releasing on 6 August.

Anyways, I'm a happy chappy, so maybe all of you can also start asking your dealers if they have it as well.

Just curious as to what is the purpose of blanking out your license plate? I don't think any of us here is going to go to the RTO (In India) or the DMV here in USA and similar transport authorities to do any searches. I see a lot of the forum members doing that and it always baffles me as to why.

Anyway, the grill looks great. How much did it cost you in INR?

To be honest, I don't know!!!! Everyone does it, so I do it

It cost me INR 20,500, and labour was free.

Does the IND part just include the grill and the active part will remain in place from the OEM build that is currently on my G05?

That part number is only for vehicle with the camera. If you have night vision it will not work.

If anyone is looking for the black grills let me know. PM me your vin number and I can get them from BMW.

How is the ride with 22"?

im debating between Sapphire vs Carbon black

Interior trim is the matte anthracite wood ("Pappel Maser" in German). HK stereo, innovation package and a bunch of other stuff. Changed wheels to the 22 inch 747M, mostly because they are not run-flats, and they look very good. Hope ride-quality will still be OK. Also hope the blacked out color schema will look as brutal as I imagine, never saw an X5 with it here so far. Went to the dealership but they had none to inspect, however there was an all-black 7-series there and it looked dope, so I think I won't regret opting out of the Cerium Gray accents.

Regarding road tax in Sweden, I feel your pain, I am a Swede but relocated to Germany years ago. Last car in Sweden was a goddam VW Passat and thus represents a very dark episode of my life. Tax is not a factor for me, it is a leasing car with an attractive package from my employer. I don't know what the road tax here is, but seeing the cars that run around the streets and autobahns in Bavaria, I would assume it is manageable for most people who can afford an X5.

Sorry, I am not Mike but took liberty to answer your question.

Part no. 51-13-8-096-590

OE $200 to $250 with shipping.

After market around $100 +

No affiliation. For reference only.

https://www.bmwpartspros.com/oem-par...le-51138096590

Check with the vendor for fitment.

If you're BMW CCA member and purchase from dealership you might get additional discount.

Google will help.

Good Luck.

The only issue with painting the center is the black camera and housing. Works if you have a black car, but otherwise...

I painted my chrome surround but left eh center slats unpainted. (mineral white car). I like a little bit of contrast

Any pics? I'm thinking of doing something similar (black outer, cerium grey slats, body color center).

I have a black sapphire car with chrome grille and chrome active shutters. Has anyone replaced the grille with a black one but left the shutters with the chrome accent? Interested to see what that would look like.

Appears blacking out the shutters will be much more work/money. Am I wrong?
