Yes you must remove the bumper.

You need to remove the front bumper and trim the driver side brake duct. A good shop should be able to do it in 1.5-2.0 hours.

wait. you get more gains. costs a little more, but the install is DIY and you get the additional HP. I'm waiting for the GruppeM.

hey dudes, I don't believe that you need to remove the bumper at all, even with xenons.

what I think you can do is simply turn the steering wheel full left and then remove the forward portion of the inner fender splash shiled. you should be alble to reach the xenon balast screws through the opening. you may need to jack the car up at the left front (put it on a jack stand) to give you more working room.
