Thanks for the instructions. Unfortunately on the European F31 Sport you can't get your hand behind at all so I went the old school way with a set of snips to cut the tabs off the existing whiskers as wasn't planning on keeping or selling them.

Installed new black painted ones, eventually arrived from IND via a friend, (much cheaper shipping) and looks a lot better with black whiskers and a black grille on the front!

imo, its personal preference.
FYI sportline fog grills dont fit on the base model but only by a couple of missing inserts and overall whole foglight bumper dimension

had that one coming bc of different bumpers but it didnt hurt to try plus the parts guy wasnt sure either so i went with it. dnt judge me

with that being said, my plans for a gloss black theme (m performance grills+black chrome tips+gloss black fog grills w/black whiskers) are a no go..

i was trying to go for the perfect gloss black trifecta looks wise...tellem franco
I did it to my base line, you have to trim a couple of tabs but me and a few others have done it. Mines sit perfectly flush and I wrapped them in red it matches perfect and in my opinion it looks like it came that way here's a pic

Just had a look at my 2017 318i and my silver whiskers are a different shape, and I think are attached differently
