    Replacement grille for 740iL

    I need to purchase the right grille (51138231594) for a 2001 740iL.

    Other than the dealership ($$$) where is a good source for body/trim parts? I have checked eBay but there seems to be a lot of non OEM replacments and I don't want something that is going to fall of the car in 3 months.

    Thanks**************

    Just an FYI...you DO know that the grill slats

    will be ALL black, right?

    If the grills you have now have chrome on the front edge of the slats...then you will end up with a snaggle-tooth look (one side black/one side shiny).

    To combat/correct this situation (if your slats have chrome on them)...you need to order the right grill for a 1999-2001 750iL (BMW part nbr 51 13 8 231 596). Go back to the part database and look up the part number for the 750iL grills...and look for the word CHROM in the supplemental column.
