Phytonic Blue w/Modified Grille Pics - Post here!

I've been scanning threads and have found a couple of pics, please post your Phytonic Blue with modified grille pics here.

I'm trying to decide on doing all black vs. black slats/chrome surround.

Thanks!

Noice! I'm torn between black or blue for the middle part... Black looks "angrier" to me.

Thanks, that's the one I'm leaning towards, but was hoping to get some more pics.

This is the only one I could find...

Yeah, that's mine, sorry - it's been really sh#tty weather here for the past few weeks, and it's going to rain all day tomorrow. Hopefully I can get a few good ones after that and get them posted. However, I really think the grill looks great in this combo.

Thanks for posting! I saw them in the chrome/black thread also. I like the chrome surround, personally. Both are improvement over the stock. In particular, I find it very strange that BMW left the center strip chrome. It should match body paint, at a minimum.

Do you have a more direct frontal view?

M50d, not the 50i. Just google and take a look. They are grey

I will post better shots once the work is complete. The lower grill is still on order so didn't take good pics yet.

Just a PSA.
Looks like the M50d grille is part number 51137454888 and is about $185 from MyBimmerParts.com if anyone is interested.

I think I prefer the all black look. Did like the Blue center at first, but then the "zit" comment made me second guess myself
