It’s the little things that make the difference. Ever since the first time I saw a US Delivered M235i, I thought the front end looked much cleaner without the blades in the grilles. It turns out you can buy the genuine part relatively cheaply on eBay, so I decided to have a crack at it!

The clips do require quite a bit of force to release and it’s quite scary the first time you do it, however it’s much easier once you know where all the clips are, so hopefully this video will be a big help!.

Please make sure you use quality pry tools which are nice and soft so you don’t damage your paintwork.
