    OEM Performance Grills Question

    Are these black OEM performance grilles? They are matte and the slats are very wide. They are for an pre-lci e92. I am pretty sure they are not OEM, I just want some definitive input. A private party sold these to me and they were advertised as 'OEM' and 'Performance', now they are refusing a return because they claim they are 'OEM'. Every vendor/dealer has told me no way these are OEM and that they are aftermarket. Appreciate your help.

    I don't know if they are OEM but what difference does it make? The grille looks fine.

    Well, if they weren't OEM, I would have paid less and OEM grills are gloss black (which is the look I was going for).

    I see, but I think unless you can get a full refund you should keep them.

    They were described as OEM Performance Grilles, every vendor/dealer I spoke to said they should be gloss black, have a part # or BMW logo stamped on them. I paid with PayPal. The only exact match I could find was on eBay, they have the thick slats/vents and are considered "euro".
