I am a forum member and not a paid sponsor. Most would rather get a real owners perspective of these types of projects. This also isn’t the grill being sold by IND so the fit and finish can vary with manufactures.

I totally appreciated this post. I ended up buying the exact same one off EBay- it literally arrived 2 days later. While it's not as heavy and substantial as the OEM grill, the figment was perfect and the plastic wasn't fragile.

I just couldn't bring myself to pay the high mark up prices of some vendors- and really want the OEM black one when it comes out. This was the perfect short term fix. Thanks again.

Took delivery of new X5 , dealers technicians refused to fit grill, unless they took front bumper/ fender off. I said thanks but no thanks, Drove away from dealer with new OEM shadow line grill in boot/ trunk. Parked in Asda carpark, 3 minutes later, no tools required , no tape required. (push your fingers in the holes ) new grill installed ..... under 5 minutes . daughter vlogged it ...

Same with my dealer.

Picked the car up yesterday, grill arrived today, done in 5 minutes, without setting fire to it, scratching it, dropping it, which is a record 1st for me!
