imm assuming you hav all the parts ready to bolt on?

if so:

2 or 3 scrivets on each guard liner facing forward

remove the grille

2 10mm bolts on top of the front bumper (may have to remove the top lock plastic cover first)

about 8 7mm scrws underneath on the splash tray

then it should unclip from the guard with a small amount of force, then itl slide off. (dont forget to unplug your driving lights too)

installation is reverse of that.

Matey, if you can afford to buy a BF, then buy that. BAs did have some issues that were fixed up with the BF, just get as late a model as you can afford, BFs went from 2005-07.

Just like what Ash said :D

if you can get a bf, the bf2 had different body kit design if i recall, and you may find one with a 6 speed auto. plus i think the bf had a couple more kw than a ba.

There's many many improvements in the BF over BA. Some are obvious and documented, others are just big fixes and "nice to haves".

If you can afford it, no question go for a BF.
