BMW F40 118i M135i Genuine M Performance Shadow Line Gloss black front grille

Got this new style of front grille from Bmw. However there's an extra step you need to do when you install a M135i front grille on a non M135i car, the intake flaps have to be removed. There won't be any fault codes or notifications showing that there is an error. Here is how it was removed.

Nice! Did you get it done on your own?

I did it and after 2 days I received a engine light for the air flap not staying within the specific rage of motion , I assume since the flap is gone it doesn't stop at the top and must go past a certain marker or angle .

Has anyone got this also and or fixed the issue

To protect my warranty I'm removing this grill and replacing it with the following which is acceptable full active grill cars.

Hi Everyone,
Quick question: Is it possible to NOT remove the intake flaps and install only the grille? My concern is that the cooler remains unprotected after removing it.

Cheers!
Alex
