just as i expected :( this is too much for me might get it done when it goes for the fog surrounds colour coded its beacuse i want a oversize intake for that BMC i fittet and the airbox intake restiricts the air flow as its size is 60mm compared to the 70mm intake on the BMC

It's easy to remove the bumper, 15 min job. They won't remove the bumper to do fog surrounds as they just pop out.

lol take out the original air box the pipe that goes to the bottom of it is plastic and goess off towards your passanger side headlight.
then that pipe goes down to behind the foglight ( i think) as from what i can see then there is another pipe comming off that going to this plastic box under the battery which i couldt get out. ashy can you talk me throught the bumper off procedure? thanks

The plastic box thing you couldn't get out is (I imagine) the resonator. These are indeed a pig to remove. Remove the battery and battery tray for easy access.

Everyone says theyre hard to remove but i didnt find that at all, took me 15mins tops and thats without looking it up on here! And believe me, im not technical minded at all, just short in patience and good at breaking things by using my strength haha :D

Exactly WHAT are we talking about here?
If it is the resonator that's a piece of cake, no need to remove the battery tray.

Fair enough, ashy, all I'm saying is I couldnt get the thing out from above or underneath. Taking the battery tray out wasn't brain surgery or time consuming so that's how I did it.
