Depends on how confident you are? I removed mine a few weeks ago to fit Westfalia towbar for my bike trailer.
2 bolts to remove the plastic lip going into the boot these are covered by blanking plates located just below the tail lights can't miss them.
3 bolts in the wheel arch pull back wheel arch liner and there is another bolt a bit further up, same on both sides then 9 bolts along the bottom.
Pull the bottom of the bumper on the wheel arch to release the side brackets
Get a plastic tool in the shape of a small flat headed screw driver which I believe you can by for doing this job as there are a few clips along the top of the bumper where it meets the body. Get a tourch and as you pull the bumper toward you you'll be able to seem them use the plastic tool to push the clips down and the bumper will come away, I think there are about 4-5 each side and that's it's the bumper will come away
Easy lol

Do you think 80 to fit the lights is a fair price ?
