Smile [DYI] [US x3 35i] My third mod: BMW Performance Glossy Black Grilles

And another mod finished yesterday.

Using excellent stactum's guide on how to remove the grille, I set out to do the mod, but failed miserably, as my hands were just too big to fit in the tight spaces around the bumper cover, the grille and the radiator.
Anyway, it is easier to do it with someone, one person unsnaps the kidneys while the other keeps them unsnapped and pulls on the bumper cover. It literally takes 10 minutes total.

Finished product:

Let me know what you think!

Ps. Thanks Peter for your help.

Mod history:
1. [DYI] [US x3 35i] My first mod: Euro side mirrors (aspherical)
2. [DYI] [US x3 35i] My second mod: Euro headlight switch (rear fog lights enabled)
3. [DYI] [US x3 35i] My third mod: BMW Performance glossy black grilles (kidneys)
