DIY F30 LCI M-Sport Black Kidney Grille Installation

Following the steps of marcw here: http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1219126

I also replaced the factory chrome kidney grille with the Black M-Performance Kidney Grille.

I couldn't find an old computer port cover, so, I used tweezers and inserted the back part into the plastic clips and pulled the lip while pulling on the grille from outside. Took some trial and error at first, but once I managed to make one, all 8 were very easy. Then, reaching from inside with my arm to do the other one was very simple. At the dealership here they said they'll have to remove the whole bumper to do it, so I just bought the grille and told them that I'll install it myself.

If you're going to do this, don't forget to put some sort of tape on any metal object you use in order to avoid damaging the plastics

Looks good, I was able to do it using just my fingers but I have slim fingers. No tool needed.
