Seriously, pull the bumper up and forward?

Since there are merely clips holding it (which is similar to the E82 grill), you just put both hands into the grill slots on the left and right edges and yank it towards you to remove.

Then to insert the new grill with your hands in the same location push it in until you hear it seat.

Zero tools needed, 30 seconds elapsed time.

At one time I actually had 3 separate grill sets; the stock one; one with painted surrounds; and a black matte one. I was constantly swapping them out once I got tired of the look.

Like a female trying to decide what hairstyle looked better, I was always changing my mind after a while.

If I had to do this DIY instruction each time it would be a one time deal.
The path to God is clear, and it takes us to the cross.
