It slides up mate,it just clips on. You can use a screwdriver or a pick to ease it off

Cheer buddy was bit unsure on copper grease, but thought ad give it a go as it will get pretty warm in there, Will keep an eye on it. 

 

Probably look for better lubricant but all I had in shed.

 

Cleaned out with WD40 beforehand.

Copper grease is perfect for the EGR as it is heatproof. I've seen people clean them over the years (carb cleaner, brake cleaner, engine degreaser), but they seize fairly soon afterwards as they inadvertently dissolve any grease or lubricant that was in there.

WD40 also do a sprayable copper grease, which is good for getting in places a dollop of copper grease can't.

Finally installed the gloss black M5 style grilles I bought over the winter to replace the OEM chrome versions. 

 

Managed to remove the chrome ones without snapping any of the tabs so I can reinstall if I get fed up with the gloss black :-)

Came in about 1 week, not the 6 weeks it mentions. You can also get it painted for another £25. Looking at the reviews the paint quality seems to be good, but i wanted my local guy to do it, plus wanted it bonded on. It came with double sided sticky tape which I don't think would survive over 20mph lol.

 @Phil_530d They're 408M's, 19" M5 winter wheels. They're made by BBS and superlight too, saved 4KG per corner. No need for spacers either, perfect offsets.
