What held it in there. They have those nice carbon fibre replacement ones for our cars. Bmw just wants an arm and leg for them. For shits and giggles, I asked them how much was their front grills, and they told me something like 140 for one side!!! Glad I have the matt black ones from trinity.

There are a couple of clips, thats all. the caps are meant to "pop" in and out so that is definitely the correct way to remove them.

I'll be posting pics once my car is complete. Should only be a couple more weeks!
