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

Wow the 2017 is QUITE different. BMW always changing silly things in LCI.

Last night I decided to try my hand wrapping my whiskers in 3M matte black from a previous project. It went fine though it took me about 12" of vinyl wasted because of initial failure doing the wrap job. The angles are quite intense and since you need to wrap 3 sides (face, top, bottom) it gets a little... challenging.

I focused on the "top" of the whisker and face. Bottom is acceptable but not as good as face/top, which is more important. The matte vinyl I used is not a very deep black considering it's matte, so it has a very very dark grey appearance. Not sure if I like it enough yet or not.

Hi I am bumping because I am having trouble removing them off my 2016 340i. The clip layout is different, there are 3 on each side. Does anyone have tips or know if a thread that discusses this? Thank you!
