As a first-time BMW owner, this sticky is excellent. After I spent a whole day combing through the DIY forum looking for the ones I wanted. At least I can take comfort in the fact that ones listed here are the ones I liked the most as well.
Cheers,
A

There aren't instructions in the PDF for the aero package, but it's fairly simple, I did it myself. From what I remember, there are about 7-10 screws and pins that hold it in place, just look under there and you'll see them. Pop the pins out and unscrew the screws holding it in, then gently pull on it and it'll unclip from the bumper.

You then clip the new diffuser in place and pop the pins and screws back in.

However, with my non-OEM diffuser, it wasn't fully holding in place with just the clips. During your installation of the quad diffuser, don't be worried if that happens. If it's not fully holding up or lining up perfectly with the clips alone, start by putting the screws in, and then put the pins in and it should then fit like a glove.

Is there a DIY for the side grilles? ... Couldn't find any. I know it's probably easy, but a DIY would be nice for the young and cautious.

Awesome thread! Here's a DIY for replacing halogen bulbs. For some reason your link for Xenon bulb change is for an e90 which doesn't have the access point.

Maybe you want to add it to the list for interior modifications?

Thanks

Here's a DIY i did for the trunk liner removal:

http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1086883

A bunch of people have referred to it for replacement of the OEM amp, which sits on the left side of the trunk area just under the cargo/cubby hole.

May not be the right place for this but here goes. I need the wiring diagram a 2013 328i. My passenger door lock does not operate at all from the central control or the fob. I know it is probably the actuator but I would like to confirm prior to the actual tear down and replacement. Does anyone have the wiring diagrams. All I find on the web is for the older generations. Thanks in advance for any help.

I know there's a diy for for m sport lip install on the f30 but the lip on the f32 is different and would like to know if it's the same? I believe the install screws/rivets used is similar but not identical but would like to get some confirmation from those who did the f32 install.

Thanks for the help!
