Any one know what these are?

Hello People,

I wanted to know if any one knows what those fins kind of things on the front are ?

I have not seen those on any of the US spec cars.... Can any one shed some light on this.
If they are after market or factory ?
Can they be purchased from BMW ?
What are they called ?

I guess you`ll need 4 parts.

2 x mesh
2 x blades

Anyone in Germany feel like going to a parts counter and asking to see?
I'd be interested in ordering these to retrofit my US car, but only if the blades are on there. ETK doesn't seem to have them as a separate part.

You'll have to buy them to see them!
No dealer will have them in stock.

If they are not part of the mesh, they gotta have a separate part#
Maybe we need to wait for the next update to the ETK database.

I didn`t say that there are not part of the mesh!
I just said, that he didn`t found a seperate piece, so we assume that it`s one part, mesh and blade.

Keep in mind that the cars with the fins have one of the grilles closed off whereas cars without have both grilles open and another radiator for additional cooling.

BMW describe them as 'air blades' but in my opinion a purely cosmetic feature, always wondered why they were omitted from M235i's in the North American market.
