Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.
Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.
The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.
The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.
This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

I went to the outmotoring store on Monday and the lady who helped me was just really nice and easy to work with.
I recently purchased a few items for my R56 as i begin to make it more my own as well as some maintenance parts. I was extremely satisfied with service that I've received from OutMotoring. The level of service I've received makes it easy for me to return to OutMotoring or my future needs. With technology it's so easy to buy from anywhere/anyone, but when a company goes above and beyond they set themselves apart from everyone else.
