So the nipple is basically pointing down, yea?

I've installed it accordingly to that manual just due to my OCD but don't think it makes a difference?

Tried installing gloss black kidney grilles from Alibaba and wow fitment was so off I didn't even bother trying to adjust it with anything.

Finger gap kind of off fitment...

Scored a P-n-P trim cache and made more progress to the repair list. Found out that my master fan clutch removal kit doesn't have the right stuff to fit the BMW, thanks Snap-On. My Superduty filter flip socket does fit the Bimmer. My front and rear washer pumps are hooked up backwards. And I think I should have bought some Ebay action cameras and started a YouTube channel with all the goofy repairs this car has in for me.

Washed the cars today to get the salt off. I can't wait for winter weather to be over!
