just received my 550xi with M sports and can't wait to get the performance grill on, but am getting stuck on this part:

"Once all screws are removed you'll need to pull the center of the front bumper forward to remove chrome grilles. There's nine clips holding it to the bumper. With one hand just pull the grill out on the portion of the grill where you are pushing the clip down with your other hand."

Is this somehow different for the non-M and M-sports? there's just no way for me to get my hand behind the grill enough to push the clip down. I'm barely able to squeeze a flat had screw driver in enough to release the top clips, which i finally did, but have no way of reaching the bottom ones. any help would be much appreciated. thanks!
