DIY E90 grill question..

Hi guys!
I'm thinking to change my grill to the matte black one. But 2 of the upper grill's screws won't be open.
Can you guys tell me how to open those screws?
Thanks,
Felix

These are the screws that I'm talking about..

You just need a torx driver, available at Lowes or anywhere else that sells tools. It's a specific star shaped bit for your screwdriver. I removed these on my car and it wasn't particularly hard. Let me know if you need help.

the nut is spinning on the other side, I had this same problem... you can snap the chrome bezel off, but becareful as you can break the snaps. I had to but a notch in the copper nut and hold it with a flat head. A real PITA!!!!

I would super glue the new ones so you don't run into the same problem!
