You pays your money, You makes your choice.

Although I haven't seen the product I don’t think I’d bother.
I’m sure 3M adhesive backing is a very good product, but the front of a car is a hostile place to be sticking tin foil. With our climate being what it is I don’t think it’d be long before you started noticing bits of it missing. When the cars parked, I’ve heard my grille creaking as it heats up on a hot day. Hot, Cold, Expand & Contract, I just can’t see it being any good. The feedbacks a bit iffy too.

Agree with Simon. You generally get what you pay for. The avantgarde grille insert for the W202 is a totally different shape anyway to the standard one, so no way that this kit would work.

It's what BMW use to fix the M3 and M5 boot spoiler on! :)
