F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
F80 BMW M3 sedan, F82 BMW M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible forum. This 5th generation M3 and all new M4 features a 3.0 liter twin turbo engine (engine code S55) 425hp and 406lbs of torque! Heavy use of light weight materials makes this generation lighter and faster then the outgoing E9x M3.

Lower Grill Replacement

I am planning on replacing my lower front grill for cosmetic reasons. I have purchased a new one (photo attached). Does anyone know if it is possible to remove and install without removing the entire front bumper cover? It looks like a simple snap in place type install with slide in clips on top and bottom. I am trying not to remove the entire cover because I have "Parking Sensors' in the kidney grills and everything is in perfect alignment and fastened with adhesive that i don't want to disturb.
Thanks
Glenn

Lower Grill Replacement

Whatís causing the need for replacement? I think itíll be necessary to remove the bumper so that you donít break any clips/attachments.

Thanks, bumper has been remove and grill replaced. Not that difficult. Actually repaired a few things and removed all the bugs and leaves from all the coils while I was there. Replaced the grill because I removed two old Escort laser shifters and had a slight damage spot from a slow rabbit verses a fast car...
