Easy:

Its best with trim removal tools, but I found a wide flat screwdriver was Ok - just be very careful not to dent or scratch the plastic.

I also found it easier to start from the back clips - the three at the front are much easier once the back two are released.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
