    (Hi guys, my first post in this forum. )
    I change the grill by myself last week (with the help of a friend). Yes you'll need to remove the front bumper but no need to lift up the car, as you can reach the screws on the side front wheel by turning the wheel leftmost/rightmost. The procedure is exactly as illustrated by @Helvetica . One thing to remind is when you're about to remove the grill, remove the entire grill + the grill holder from the top of the bumper. After that you can easily detach the grill from the holder and switch it with the new grill.

    It was the first DIY project I've done to my car so honestly I have little knowledge about the car structure. It took us about 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. Taking out the bumper ended up was the simpliest and most straight-forward part, where we waste almost an hour figuring out how to take out the grill (!!). Anyway it's a fun process, and I would recommend anyone who feel interested to do it. Not hard at all.

    looks great! really considering doing this but don't know how the quality of the grill is. Any updates on how the grill is holding up? Any debris getting stuck inside?

    The grill is from alibaba as this is the cheapest way to access the grill from Hong Kong. The quality is fine. The grill stays rigid on the spot. So far the internal is clean. but I would assume it will become messy if left without cleaning after months tho haha. In general i would say diamond grill shall give a better protection.

    Took about 1.5 hours as they installed my rear boot lid spoiler too.
