Just did it to my Red e92. I got my grills from JleviStreetWerks.com for ~$60. Real easy stuff. I'll put up pics tomorrow, stupid sun has set...

My $.02: I'm pretty sure they're Torx screws, but they're so loose an allen will work on them. I used a 4 mm and it was fine (5/32" = 3.9 mm). Did anyone notice that the head on the inner screws were thicker than the heads on the outer, or am I making this up?

Sorry, my bad. I paid $100. It was the body colored front reflector I paid ~60 for. I should know better than getting some 'holiday cheer' in my system and posting.....

Now you need to match the bottom mesh grill to match your kidney grills!!!

I want to add some advice:

The grills are two-piece. The chrome outer ring and the chrome slats.

If you take a flathead screw driver and gently try to pry apart the chrome ring and the slats the ring will come off and then you can put your flathead and pull out the slats section that is actually the piece attached to the bumper.

I'm sorry I wasn't that clear. Once you start you will get it.

Just to clear up the proper tool for unscrewing the bolts; It's a T-30...
