I recently installed the Milltek twin tips and I didn't have to remove my bumper. Though you would need a workshop with a hoist to get it high above your head to have good access to it.Hi I've ordered some night pack exhaust tips for my a35, will i have to remove the whole rear bumper or just the diffuser? Any help would be appreciated.
If it just a swap of the tailpipes, I believe it can be done without removing the bumper.
Here a picture of me removing my tailpipes with the bumper on, the plastic cage is still on.
If it's just swapping of your chrome tips to the night package black tips, you can do it without removing the bumper.
You would need to have the car hoisted up, loosen up your exhaust to have the tips wiggle their way off.
And if you ask me, once the car is hoisted up, removing the exhaust have less chance in breaking anything as compared to removing the whole bumper(clips and fragile brackets everywhere).
To some, removing the bumper may be easier, but I did not want to take the bumper off because I believe they are best fitted from factory, but that's my own opinion on that and i may be wrong.

Was it just a matter of removing the two rivets from each exhaust and wiggle free?
The stock exhaust is one whole piece from the muffler to the GPF which connects to the down pipe.Was it just a matter of removing the two rivets from each exhaust and wiggle free
