well, I found a guy that works for a BMW bodyshop through a friend that would repaint the entire bumper for me for a significant discount, but the only catch is I'd have to bring in the bumper removed from the car. Ouch. With the senors, fogs and washers, I have to imagine this to be a bear. I looked on this forum and found no DIY for this removal. Anybody here seen a DIY on front bumper removal?
Regarding the black grills - thanks! Its a subtle change, but I think the impact is huge removing the chrome. Was just a matter of figuring out how to remove the old ones. From there is took about 5 minutes to remove and pop in the new ones...
