Procedure

Installation is very simple. Press each one of the inserts into the grille. Stay away from the tape or stripes that stick on the grille. They come off easily and won't last.

  1. Park the BMW on level ground and set the parking brake. park bmw and install m grill stripe

     

  2. Use a clean cloth to wipe any dirt or debris from the kidney grille on the driver's side. 
  3. Next, install the dark blue or violet stripe. This is the middle stripe and will be between the light blue and red stripes.bmw m 3 color grille sticker installtion wandkings grille stripe

Note that the stripes are curved more on the top than the bottom. Make sure to avoid installing them upside down.

The BMW M decal colors are light blue, dark blue, and red.

To be perfectly correct, the dark blue stripe should actually be a dark violet, but in most cases, a dark blue stripe is used. The three stripes are part of the BMW ///M logo.
