DIY - Replacing Front Bumper Grills for E92
Here's a simple mod, that's cheap and I think makes the car look a lot better.
I got the grills from JWlevi on sale for $45.
Remove the 4 hex nuts circled at the top of the front bumper
Second pull the bumper back and reach behind the grill to reach the tabs. You can use a screwdriver to
press the tabs in.
On the car there are 6 mounting tabs
3 at the top
2 on the bottom
1 on the outside edge closer to the head lights
The best way to do pull the grill of is start with the tap on the outer edge, unclip and pull lightly and from there work your way toward the middle. With some luck you won't break any of the clips.
The last part is placing the black grills on. Pop the tabs in at the same time, or else it will be a PITA on the last tab.
Then repeat on the other side. Afterward make sure to place the hex nuts back.
Over look the dirty car, I figure I'd put the grills on before I washed the car.
Since I got nothing better to do with my old grills, I'll make a DIY on how to paint them later.2010 335i Coupe Le Mans Blue
