    Has anyone replaced the standard S grill with a JCW grill? I recently purchased the JCW and haven't been able to find any videos of instructions on how to remove and replace. [​IMG]

    I had mine done recently. I believe you have to remove the front facia to change grill and/or grill surround. I was having body work done on the front end and they were replacing the grills anyway, so I had them use the JCW part instead of the S part.

    Buy the JCW grilles that Outmotoring has and you don't have to remove the bumper to install them.

    For the F56? I don't see anything on their site that states that. Everything I've read about changing the grills or surround on the Gen 3 cars required removing the front facia/bumper. I would love to be proved wrong though, in case I decide to change my grill surround.

    Call AARON and ask him about it.
