M tri-coloured front grille stripes

Hi Brisbane 1er owners.
I am wanting to get some self adhesive vinyl stripes to dress up the front grille. Does anyone know any stores in Brisbane southside selling them?
I know i can get them from ebay. But hate buying from other country. Love aussie made products.

I quite like the look of this also. Do you guys just buy a large piece of vinyl and cut to size on the car, or do they come pre-cut to the exact size?
Anyone know of any UK sellers for the parts?

Thanks

Don't get me wrong. I meant buying from ebay has more chance to have it lost in mail and have to wait for a long time to get it. Buying locally is more convenience.

Can't decide if I like it or not, would have to see it on a car to be sure and the grills being chrome or black would make a difference I suspect.

I'd understand this if you were buying new wheels for your car, but you're talking about stickers for a few measly bucks. Take a chance. Live a little!

That is a beatiful picture.

I have seen lately in Norway, that people go for the colours from the German flag on their stripes instead of the ///M-colours.

Hi guys

I have installed a set of Vinyls in the m sport colours to my Valencia Orange 120d MSport. It may not be a propper M or MLite car, but i feel it goes well with the styling.

The car has the standard chrome surround and I really like the reflections this gives. Special thanks to sonnenjunge for the correct colours!

Here's some photos. Sorry for the quality, they were taken on my phone:

Looks great. I love it. But my miss doesn't like it, saying it ruins the overall look of clean black grille. So i am banned from putting any colour stripes on my coming 125i. Very sad.

I think it looks best on black or white cars.

That looks great! Have you any pics from a bit further away?

Also, where did you get the front spoiler under your bumper?

Thanks mate, your car looks superb! I thought I recognised the splitter too, its a lot of money for what it is!!! Some guys on www.babybmw.net are looking at cheaper options.

Hey Pete jumping across from the Baby BMW Forum, got to say Sonnenjunge's car is just about perfect to my eyes, I did have it as wallpaper but switched to an Alpine White one now as my M135i is only 10 days away

I am waiting on the Tripple R UK splitter also as the Lightweight one is pretty expensive although I must say it does finish off the front really aggressively, particularly when the car is lowered

Love to have front lip for my 125i too. But i am worried about the speed bumps and the road conditions in Australia. Don't want to scrap the front lip.
