The bumper doesn't flex enough and there is some stuff in the way as well.

You can either rip out the old ones, damaging the clips, or you'll have to remove the front bumper..

I got my hand in there on mine. It hurt like hell, but I still managed to loosen the top clips. I still couldn't get the others off, so I constructed a tool out the handle of a spoon to help me (image). The spoon got the job done, so wouldn't have needed to loosen the bumper like I did.

Hi guys, I recently got my grills removed after spending some time learning how to do it.

I'll be posting a step-by-step soon on how to get the job done

Bradbury your tool worked like a charm

Ive got a set of original M135i grills taken from my Sept 13 car when it had less than 5,000 miles on it. PM me if you still need a set to spray.
