I just installed a Valentine one on my e92 m3. Its much easier to lower the headliner by simply unscrewing the clips that hold the sunvisor adjacent to the light fixture. I have no idea how someone could place fingers in between the headliner without doing this first. I tried for about fifteen minutes with no luck. Once the sunvisor clips were removed it literally took one minute to pop out the center fixture. Also, I just used the alligator clips that came with the kit, just like others have done and it works perfectly. No problems. The OP has very detailed instructions but in the pictures you can see that the headliner is actually bent, in order to push fingers through, to get access to the center fixture.
