Best place to get the OEM slatted black kidney grille that ships to Canada?

My dealership is quoting me $335 CAD before taxes just for the part and no installation.

Is this a fair price? Or can the OEM black grille be had for less?

I paid £190 for black grille, including VAT and fitting.
BMW online shop price is £163 including VAT.

Seems like a rip off. It can be had for $135 USD in the states, so $335 CAD just seems high

That looks really good with the silver paint.

I am still debating if it looks good on alpine white. Sometimes I like the chrome more and sometimes the black.

Holy hell! The black grill takes it up a few notches looks wise. What did you do about the chrome trim surrounding the windows?

Nothing yet with the chrome trim around the windows but am currently trying to find a deal on the shadowline trim and then throw some tint on the windows. I really wish they did the msport in glacier silver .

My car looks like yours except that itís white. I guess it should look kinda similar with the black grill. Iím very tempted now.
