Yeah that should work too, since you have a dark color but with white it makes it very tricky. Since you've removed your bumpers all you have to do is take the rebar off for the long trim. there are tabs visible that you press down on to release the trim from the bumper. if you left the rebar attached to the car you also have access to the back trim piece. trust me I know I've broken my share of trim

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
