    I didnt take off my bumper to fit the colour coded V-bar, but I really wish I had!!. I ended up breaking off all the clips for the original bar so It cant be refitted. If I had more room I may well of left most of them intact. To change the whole grille the whole bumper needs to come off.

    Exactly same as Ian,

    broke 50% of the clips on the grille that came off & also broke a couple of the clips on the bumper itself.. Lesson Learnt.
