Availability of BMW M Performance Kidney Grille?

Has anyone successfully ordered the 2012 F12 OEM BMW M Performance Kidney Grille (black) from BMW? This should be compatible with the Non M-Sport version of the car.

The last time I spoke with my dealership a few months ago, he said that the part # showed up in their systems but that it wasn't available yet in Canada.

Thanks.

How do they look? I'm thinking of having them + the carbon fiber side mirror caps.

This is for my Vermillion Red F12.

im from germany! here its about 120,- ...but note: for the installation, you have to remove the complete front bumper.

I have also a F10, here you can change the kidney without removing the bumper.

I have ordered the deck spoiler as well as the CF mirror covers. The Blacked out grill looks fabulous with the chrome surrounds but I am not a fan of the "All Black" IMHO
On the lighter colored cars it works but ours is Carbon black and will just get lost in the front end. But the chrome grill surrounds and Black kidney (as per the M6) looks awesome.

I ordered what I thought was to be blacked out fins and a chrome surround and instead they installed the grilles that have a blacked out surround and chrome fins!!! YIKES! If it looks good, Ill snap some pics when I pick up the car. Otherwise, its back to the drawing board.

Wait - did I read that right? You have to remove the bumper to replace the grills???

Every other BMW I've had, they just pop right out (some easier than ours).

I was about to order the black grills, but removing the front bumper is very time consuming.
