    Some have got the grill off without but you take your chances as people have broken the grill.
    Bumper off is not hard,just undo a few screws and remove lugs and you can bring it forward enough to get at the grill....if you are in Warwickshire I'd help.

    I never had a problem pulling my grille out without taking the bumper off, just apply the force evenly around the edges, also i think spraying the original black looks alot better imo, the one your looking at reminds me of a bora, not that boras are bad lol

    did mine without removing the bumper, i found it easiest to cut out the original one to avoid breaking any of the plastic clips, then new one just pushes in
