    Hi,
    I've been looking around for a while now but I cant seem to find a definite answer.
    Is it possible to remove the chrome surround on the front grill without removing the bumper and what not?
    Thanks.

    There should be around 20 plastic tabs between the surround and the main grill, just pop them off.
