Hey Hameed,

Its actually the TRD grille and I sent it to a company in California to recover it in the silver CF. I found the company on E46Fanatics and they were highly recommended, and he did a great job, unfortunately the business is no longer running, that I am aware of, and there are alot of unhappy people on E46 that paid them money to do work and they closed up shop with no notice. The companys name was FiberDesign

I would imagine that Carson would carry them, but they are not listed on their website.

While I like the concept of making those pieces in CF... these are painted. So, there wouldn't be any weight loss.

Yes, guys, the fitment is indeed amazing. It is very tight as well and both latches feel very sturdy and strong. As a matter of fact I will NOT be installing hood pins for now as I don't think they are necessary. <knocks on wood>

The only very minor issue with fitment is on the passenger fender side. The hood is about 2 mm higher than the fender and is not 100% flush for about 6 inches along it's length from the end closer to the windscreen down. Still worth it IMHO though!
