Does anyone know how to remove the OEM right and left side front fender grills? I'm hoping to install new matte grills.

Any help in the matter would be great.

:cheers:

well if its anything like my m3 gills, there should be 2 clips on the bottom and 2 clips on the top of the new gills.

use a credit card or very thin tool to pop out those clips in the same spots on your oem ones. start with bottom first

Excellent tip:M5thumbs:

The chrome grills have now been replaced with the matte black ones:biggrin:

i just learned the hard way. my first attempt at replacing my chrome grill with matt black ended with me learning how to do it and also breaking most of the clips on the replacement grill by trying to push the whole thing in instead of pushing in the first half carefully and then the second. expensive and frustrating education. now im waiting for my 2nd grill to arriveouich
