      The grub screws are tiny; you’ll need a jeweller’s screwdriver to take them out cleanly.

      I managed to get into mine in a very clean fashion. The only issue
      with the how-to guide in the links section is it recommends just
      shredding the thread on the tiny screws that retain the front facia.
      You can actually get these screws by removing the metallic looking
      strip on the facia. This is clear plastic. It is stuck onto the
      facia using double sided sticky tape (yeah, yeah, very Blue Peter) -
      which is how they create that mirrored finish. Just make sure that
      when you try to prise off the plastic strip that the tape comes away
      with the strip. If you don't the finish will never be the same
      again. The facia retaining screws are then accessible. The tape
      retained its tackiness sufficiently well to bond the strip back
      again when I was finished although I didn't replace the screws
      because I figured I'd be in and out of the case more than once.

      I've done this with mine and it looks untouched (except for where I
      burred the screws using a badly fitting screwdriver).

      As ever though, if you want in you can never be sure not to void the
      warranty.
