Thanks Loren!

So, for removing the bumper, do you think it is that big of deal to jack up on stands or not?

I'd prefer to leave on the ground as long as that doesn't make it too easy to scratch the bumper cover as it's removed.

Do I need any special tools? I'm not familiar with Torx. Is that the hex wrench? Sorry for the noob questions.

No, you could leave it on the ground. Depending on your ride height it will just be a little more difficult to get to the bolts under the bumper. Got stubby tools?

I think just a phillips screwdriver and a regular screwdriver should do it for the bumper itself. On a Carrera the cooling ducts are held on with Torx screws - I think TT is the same (as I recall). Torx drivers are available at Sears and on a Carrera it was is a T-25 - I think the TT is the same. Sears sells a set of the smaller sizes so I would get that - I think it is 15 to 30 or 35. You could get Torx socket drivers too but for these (and interior) small parts it might be too easy to over-torque them. I have a set of hand Torx drivers (look like screwdrivers) for the small sizes and a set of socket drivers for the larger (35 - on). For this project the hand drivers will work fine.
