Might be a dumb question, I don't know my E39's, but what's the difference between a M5 and say a 540 grill? Same part number is listed for all...

It appears M5's and 540's share same grille with chrome on the leading edge of the slats, the 530 for example is all black slats.  Be cautious of used grilles as the plastic tabs securing them are invariably brittle/broken, as was mine...  a new set from Schmiedmann is about NZD 225 landed.

Real OEM lists same part for 535 and up... maybe you can pick some up without ///M tax?

$225 OMFG!

Cheap mate... about NZD 250 landed from FCP Euro, 290 from ECS tuning, and a gabillion (probably, haven't tried, unjustified speculation) from BMW NZ... :)

I replaced the grilles on my 540i when I had the bonnet resprayed, got them from BMW and im sure they weren't that expensive, I have a vague recollection of maybe $80 each, although that might be just what I told my wife I paid! ;)
