Why does everything take me 4 times longer than expected??
That was brutal. Before I found this post, I had gone outside to pop the hood, and I realized it might not be so easy to install my new grill. Next, I searched the web, knowing somebody had to have put a tutorial for this online somewhere, and I was pleased to see that it really wasn't that difficult of a task. So I thought. Simply put...it took me about two hours, a hacksaw blade to cut out the slats of the OEM grill, bloody knuckles, and some serious yanking on the grill to get the damn things out! Maybe BMW made the fit tighter on the clips in 2013. Anyway...total pain in the butt, but I still feel it was worth it. Before and after pics...
