Door panel snaps

OK so my door panel is falling off for the 1000th time...Last time I tried to fix it I used some budget snaps from the local car store and they didn't hold the door in place. So this time I just went to BMW and got them. Unreal that it was like $50 for about 20. Anyways the old ones had a groove in them so that you could twist them on...but the ones that he gave me this time don't....So I don't see how I can get them on....He assured me that they work for all years and models....but I think he BS'ed me.....anyone know?? I should have just gotten some on ebay or something......and when I say snaps I mean those little white things that hold the door panel on.....there is about 10 on each door. Not sure of the real name. =) thanks!

Door panel clips, yes I believe they're the same for every BMW.. Bought a bag of 50-60 for about 40-50 dollars?
Check online, next time lil things like these BMW always charges more.

For removal you should carefully use side cutters to pry them up, unless you have the proper clip remover tool :p
