To remove them, just pull REALLY hard on the grill straight out towards the front. It'll hurt your fingers hard since you just grab the grill and pull. The tabs closest to the headlights are the hardest to pull out.

It'll be cheaper to order online probably and shipping doesn't take that long. I remember a sponsor was offering a matte black kit (front grill, fender gill, rear emblem) for a good price.

Also, I'm not sure if the poster above me is serious or is just having a laugh but there's a proper DIY posted on this forum. It took me 10 minutes at most to get the OEM grills out and the new ones on.

+1! install should be easy, but renn-spec can definitely take care of the parts and labor!

wouldn't the grilles break if you do it that way?
