Looking for chrome/chrome kidneys and clear rear lights

Hi all,

As it says, OEM chrome/chrome kidney grills and clear facelift rear lights. Could do a swap with cash for my existing parts.

I would say that anyone that supplies grilles to fit two cars, will mean that they are a poor fit on one, if not both

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

Are these the ones from the Far East?

I've seen some from Germany, but it doesn't say if they are OEM or not
