    Is it necessary to remove the bumper to install new headlamps? I got new headlamps ordered HID projectors retrofitted. So they will be arriving in the next week or so. I was curious how much of a pain it is to remove the headlamps.

    Not extremely difficult but it is necessary.

    It's not incredibly difficult.

    There's a diagram around here that someone posted of how to do it.
