Anyone get grilles done by their dealership?

So I wanted to switch out my base line kidney grilles for the sport ones (not m performance, just the sport), and my dealership quoted me $213 for the grilles alone plus $65 for the service!

Anyone know if any shops in the NYC area can a) order the parts for me and b)install for something more reasonable?

I would check ebay first. After that, insallation is simple. You can do it in a minute! Don't pay anyone.

Yeah surprisingly the M performance actually seem to be cheaper. My dealer's doing those for 135, but apparently the regular sport ones cost even more than m sport =(

I would smack them... I did the grills myself and only cost was paint $6.78 and 1.5. Hrs of my time. But to each is their own. But try to get the lowest price. There is also a DIY for the grill

removing the grills

I removed the screws from the top of the panel but cant figure out how to actually get the grills out so I can replace with my new black surrounds. Looking for a DIY. Should be easy but cant seem to see how they come lose.

There are many other BMW dealerships who sell the parts online and you should be able to just have your dealership price match them. Thats what I did, they price matched flemingtonbmw.com for $95 and self install.
