    I got a set of gloss black rings from eBay mate about £10 they are nice and if you get a set you will see that they have about 6 little plastic lugs that press into the grill they say you can get them off but you often snap off a lug or two but that won't matter if you have the new rings to fit eh

    I got mine off with a small screwdriver without taking the grill off. Just prise it very carefully. Then get some black ones from the bay rather than spraying as sprayed ones chip.

    Just get some tools with angled hooks on end to get to the clips behind, but as said, the clips do tend to snap of easily tbh under pressure, hit & miss, but older they are, I would say the more prone to breakages they are.

    Sorry for the bump, but I'm toying with the idea of buying the matte black replacement rings off eBay and spraying them a gun metal grey type colour to tie in with my alloys.... But I don't want it to chip. If it took it to a body shop to spray, would the paint be more hardy that a DIY job from an aerosol can?
