    Does it require much cutting of the bumper?
    I'd like to be able to return the car to as near as standard when it comes to selling.

    i don't think it needed any mods as bumper looks standard externaly........ if you mean non visable modifications then maybe, if you like I'll check underneath?

    A pic of it fitted would be good.

    Most require a section of bumper to be removed.

    i'll check tomorrow. would the bumper section that is removed be visable externally? if that is the case then this is fine.

    i'll post a picture up tomorrow.
    if i take it off the car i believe i have to remove the bumper..... anyone got any advise of how to remove it? how long should the removal take?

    To replace the bumper I think you'll need the original bumper brackets,they are normally replaced by the towbar mounting brackets which attach to the mounting points inside the chassis legs.
