Just replaced my stock 2015 xline chrome/silver grille, with gloss black double slat I purchased from amazon.com. Not too sure if I like it though. I'll grab the chrome, outer part of my OEM grille and see if the inner double slat will fit. I wanted to see how that outer chrome with inner black double slat will look on my AW.

Just got it back from the tint shop: 35% front with 20% rear, and I had them tint the headlight orange reflectors. Yesterday I installed the OEM gloss black grills to complete the look. Now, I'm on the hunt for some wheels...

Honestly, it's much easier then you think. After reading what I am about to tell you I was even hesitant to do it but just grab 2 dish cloths and slide it between the grill. Your going to need both hands because it takes a bit of pressure to pop the locks. If you are starting on the right grill grip all the way on the top right side. Pull with a lot of pressure and the clip will pop out. Then move to the top middle and do the same then move to the top left and continue around. it takes a bit of force but just do it, nothing will damage. Took be about 1 minute to replace both grilles. Dealer wanted $150 to do it.

Took the OEM outer chrome part of the grill on my 2015 28i Xline, and used the gloss black dual slat inner I bought from amazon. Dismantling and assembling is a bit tedious but is worth the effort. I like how subtle the new look is. Name:  IMG_3683-Edited-2.jpg
