I just finished installing the M5 grills on my 2000 540i. Cost was only $54 total from Pacific BMW. Installation was a snap. Photos follow.

Passenger side grill removed.

View from inside hood so you can see location of clips

New M5 grills on shelf and stock grill laying in two pieces

Passenger grill removed. Bezel still resting in place. Simply lifts off.

Bezel removed

M5 grills installed

Car buttoned up and ready to go. Total time: 10 minutes.

I hope this takes any mystery out of this simple upgrade. This modification is about as easy as it gets.
