    If your careful it can be done without removing the bumper but its only a 20 min job to remove the bumper anyway. Forcing the grille tabs open is tedious and you feel like your snapping them! I'd take the bumper off as it means the risk of damaging your paint is cut too.

    I don't actually have anything useful to say...apart from optics will look awesome on that car! i just had mine done (but by a garage hence no tips!) and on the orange with those wheels...

    Get pics up as soon as you've done it!

    Good luck with it.

    You removed the 2 (1 each side) behind the headlight? They are just under the indicator bulb

    I had the same problem, they are quite hard to see!
