    its easy to remove, and looks easy to replace, but getting the pipes back in, then clamping them in place is the hard bit, and theres no room for 2 pairs of hands, so its trial and adjustment to get them right, only took me all afternoon, and alot of swearing and door slamming whilst saying im taking it to a garage to be done, lol

    from my dealer...
    well, it took a lot of time to fit honeycomb mash, it took some time for fog fog lights too as they didn't fit well on part fitted by irmscher so i had to modify it all but i spent most of the time while i was trying to align it on the sides as one side kept popping out despite being tightened...
