    I have a spare one piece grille, and bought the black trim, but would it be easier to swap just the trim or the complete grille?

    I have looked at a few DIYs on removing the grille (doesn't seem too easy).

    Anyone have any experience or advice, either way.

    Thanks

    Yeah its eaier to swap the whole grille. Its a bit fiddly to just change the trim as the grille has to come out anyway, then you have to take the trim from the grille and its easy to scratch when pushing the clips open.

    I had hoped to bid on the chrome one on ebay, to keep as a spare, but seller ended the auction. :(
