    Might be best if this was moved to the "car chat" section of the forums, it'll no doubt get better responses & more views than it will in the "detailing" section.

    I'm guessing we're talking facelift here. Lower grille is easy to get off, just a bunch of clips round outside.

    Upper grille is a****** to get off in my opinion. comes off in three parts, the chrome V, the backing and then the grill. All done with plastic clips but a pain to figure out which clips are for which.
