on your car, real easy.

open the hood and look in.
you will see two tabs (each)

you just need to push up on the bumper area a little to pop them out.
push the grill piece out towards you.

there are also two tabs on the bottom part of the grille.


install: from front two bottom first and snap in place.

I'm looking to do it as well, probably in the spring. Still can't decide on silver or try a chrome paint.
