X5M Bumper finally installed!

So after months of collecting necessary parts, was able to install what I have been longing for, X5M bumper and LCI fenders. The removal of the parts are tricky and challenging since there is no DIY online available, took me 3 days since I work too to complete everything but worth it

Lots of questions here, but only one that's important...

DIY?

I'd love to be able to do this at some point in the future.

Looks really good!

I bet it runs smoother, quieter, and gets better mpg too! Sorta like a freshly detailed vehicle that's been cleaned and waxed, but more noticeable.

I think he meant why didn't you do a DIY to show everyone how it is done

Yeah I realized that after I posted my response last night. Not sure if a lot of people would like to know though or willing to go this route since it's it involves removing fenders and too much stuff. We'll see if a lot of folks ask for it.

If you have a detailed spreadsheet with part numbers, prices, tips and tricks that would work in place of a DIY.

I have a laundry list of fixes/updates and this is one of them (front and rear).
