Install black kidney grill on F36

Hi all,

Can anyone point me to someone that can help me install the black kidney grill on a F36? I know everyone says it's easy to do, but I know my limitations, and being handy is one of them lol.

Any recos would be much appreciated

You can access the clips through the grills, so you don't have to remove any bolts.

Pretty sure you would need extremely small hands to get to the clips via the grills without pulling the top bumper outwards lol

Where are you? Need to know where you live to determine if I am close enough to do it for you.
