Quick DIY:

1. Remove the front bumper
2. Remove headlights
3. Remove kidney grille
4. Remove the front panel retaining screws on either side of the radiator (you may want to remove the airbox to get to the screw on the left).
5. Remove the retaining screws on the top (near hood latches)
6. Remove the screws far on each end of the front panel (you will have to do this from undeneath the car).
7. You're done
