Two questions about changing the M340i grill

I want to know if I’ll be able to buy a black grill for the M340i to eliminate the "Mercedes-AMG 43" style grill which I don't like.

1) Does the G20 black grill come with not only the surround but also the vertical slats?

2) Do the M340i and 330i have the same active flaps behind the outer grills?

It's on purpose so you spend the extra $800 or whatever to buy the right set.

You'll probably be able to sell the M340i grille to owners of 330i models.

Well, I think you can if you're "upgrading" to M Perf. Even if you can't, though, you can sell it after your lease is up.

It will probably be offered port installed.

But also I don't think bmw minds a few mperformance cosmetic options on lease returns. Not 100% on this but I believe installing anything that is offered for port or dealer installation is ok.

Not sure about Canada. 330i order guide offers black grilles option for 250 CAD. Not sure about M340

"It will be a lease, so can't." WRONG.

What bro should have said is, "some dealerships might request that you to return your car to stock...however, there are also some dealerships don't give two fucks about light cosmetic mods."

My experience last week returning a leased, 2016 Alpine White 328i M Sport was easy & the dealership had 0 issues with the mods on my sled- Gloss Black Kidney Grills, Painted side reflectors (white), Black trunk spoiler, Painted (Black) side mirror housings, tinted windows. The salesman said the car was headed straight to auction and the mods didn't matter.

Worst that can happen after you make the mod is they ask you to change it back.
