They pop out and back in without taking the bumper off, yes?

HOW TO CHANGE THE KIDNEY GRILLE
Step-By-Step DIY instructions to swap the grilles over here http://www.f30post.com/forums/showth...=kidney+grille
[Requires some tools and DIY capability, its not entirely straight-fwd, but does NOT require removing the bumper whatever the dealer tells you]
Ask your dealer to do the swap for you FOC (go via your sales manager)
They quoted me £150 for the 10-minute job and I burst out laughing, then they said they'd do it FOC
Hope this is helpful.
