I am preparing to intall my new Beltronics STi-R Plus custom installed radar detector, and will be mounting the radar antenna somewhere behind my front bumper.

I was wondering if anyone has pulled their front bumper cover and might just happen to have pictures of the car without the fascia....just to give me an idea of how many suitable locations are available.

Thanks

Do a search there are a few threads about this - also do a search for Henessey heat exchanger install. They took the whole front fascia off to install a heat exchanger with color pictures.

Are there any threads on how to just get the front grilles off? I was looking to paint them.

pull your bumper off, it's 6 screws and some clips that hold the grills on.

you can make it look like this....
