    removing front bumper

    at least for my car, BMW's TIS instructions for removing the front bumper were missing two critical steps:

    1) remove the black plastic piece that covers the gap in between the front bumper and the radiator
    2) once the cover is removed you have access to undo 3 screws that need to be removed before you can get the bumper off.

    I'm doing a 3d scan of the engine compartment/frame. Will help with measurements needed for my big project. The car has been in Switzerland for 4 years and I've been in Portugal. However, we're reunited now. :-)
