Pop the bonnet and it really is self explanatory - I thought there were 2 screws though and several plastic push in/out clips?!

picture shows screw and clips, easy to remove but there is some adjustment from side to side so you need to position correctly when refitting.

Any ideas how to easily remove the Motorsport try-color stickers on these? I purchased a new set to replace the faded ones, but they are so old that they won't come out in one piece...they are chipping away slowly.

EDIT: Never mind, found a good method and just finished replacing all 3 stickers!

How do the badges look with the replacement stickers? Got any pics?

They look phenomenal and the quality of the stickers is superb. They are made of a high quality laminated vinyl that applies on bubble-free, so they are really easy to put on. Here are a few shots...also, due to high levels of lighting being reflected inside my garage, the shots of the side gills do not reflect the true color as they look too light on the pictures; even the color of the car looks too light, but the pictures of the rear badge are dead on.

On to the eye candy:

Has anyone bought new side gills from BMW if so do the unpainted ones come complete and include M badges?

Bought a set last year Dave. All complete with badges, clips and chrome gills ready to put together after painting.
