Picked these up today

Went to the dealership to pick up my PE exhaust and also picked these up...

Planning on installing them tomorrow. Ran out of time since I installed the exhaust tonight. I love when dealerships order stuff like these items in bulk. It means they get to sale them at a discount to us.

Here in Germany I got it for 640 euros. It's about 800 US dollars. The dealer here sells so many of them they buy them in bulk so they can sell them a little cheaper. Its a easy install, took me about 45 mins to install the muffler and change the oil.

When you remove your old grills... just PULL real hard... they will pop out.

Some people use a small pick... that only works for me on three clips. I then started to pull dam hard. ...and they came off.

I installed them....
I just removed the intake ducts to make it easier to reach down inside and pop the clips out. I didn't have any of those special pick tools so I just used a allen wrench but it worked..

Here are some pictures, I know my car is dirty but I'm tired of washing it just so the rain can make it dirty again 2 hours later.. I miss the sun

Major improvement! Thanks for contributing to the 'zing da bling' campaign.

I also went to great lengths the first time in removing and installing grill, but since then I've had massive experience. So I'm heartily in the Dackel camp when it comes to just grabbing and pulling to remove, then positioning and pushing the new grills to seat them. Takes all of 30 seconds per side.

Try it next time, unless of course you truly enjoy sweating the small stuff.
