Swapping Kidney Grilles ?

Has anyone swapped out and replaced the Kidney grilles on an X3 ? Is it an easy enough DIY job or a dealer visit ?

Thanks
MS

It can be DIY. Check out this guide to grill removal/painting. It should help.

Do it yourself. It only took about 10 minutes following the instructions from above.
