Yeah I think there isn't really too much of a middle ground here, some people like the toe hook plate mount and others don't!

The only problem with the toe hook on the 6 is that it actually blocks a bit of the foglight which I only just realized. . . It won't be a problem much longer as I'm grabbing a 2015 m3 in Munich in September!

M6 Style Grilles for 640i

Hi guys, new to this forum, just took delivery of my MY14.5 640i GC (photo attached) and have been greatly enjoying reading all the posts on this forum. I know this is an old thread but I wondered if any of you guys could advise which of the aftermarket M6 style grilles allow the original chrome surround to be swapped in. I have spoken to a couple of vendors on ebay but they seem to be saying their versions are one piece and cannot be separated. I'm keen to get the same look as Jackdancer84 achieved....

My previous F10 was completely blacked out (Alpine white with zero chrome anywhere, and black wheels), and while I liked that look, I am really liking how my GC looks with the OEM wheels and just a bit of chrome. I did lay vinyl over the ugly yellow side markers, though.
I ended up with the same ones and I was also thinking they were gonna be all black. . . I think I would have preferred them black but they still make a nice improvement.
Whoa, that plate looks ghetto. Fix that pronto.

Thanks heaps for the info and the quick reply. Yeah, Estoril Blue seems to be pretty rare in these, it was an individual factory order by the guy who bought it new. He only had it 8 months and traded it in on a new M6 GC which in Australia runs at about $US280k, so obviously money was not an issue!

Thanks Heaps Doug. Actually, my first choice colour was Imola! But I've only seen one here in Australia, it has to be ordered as an Individual here. Your's looks great!

Here's a few other pics of the Estroril Blue for those who enjoy it. It might help someone else.... When I was trying to talk myself into this colour, I went trawling the web for photos and could not find any...
