    why dont you want them, am actually going to be retrofitting some in, if you decide to rip it out, let me know and ill buy it of you,

    you will need to take the bumper off, and remove the sensors,

    you will then have holes in the bumper, you can take it to a body shop and they can fill the holes in and respray the bumper.

    1 They look awful and you cant see the nice double exhausts.
