    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.

    Oh yeah, Not a fan of chrome. I think it only looks good on old muscle cars. I plan on blacking out the 335i emblem on the back this weekend if the weather is nice.

    I'll try to make DIY threads for all the mods that I do
