    I've finally got my black optics grill, i spent all last night trying to remove the bumper, removed all the torx screws i could see but still no luck.
    I heard a few people have pulled off the grill without removing the bumper! i've tried this repeatedly and even my mate who is a big guy but still, had no luck.

    does anyone have a step by step guide for removing the bumper?

    There are 2 bolts 1 each side hidden in the corner of the wings hidden behind the arch liners, need to remove these & also there are 2-3 torx headed screws that also hold it in place on the sides which the arch liner also hides, patients & torch needed, then it will come of
