Rear bumper removal/install

After having an unfortunate run in with a concrete light fixture, I'm having the pleasure of having to replace my rear bumper cover. Thanks to a member, I've procured another and will be attempting to swap them out this weekend. I was just wondering if anyone who has done this has any tips or advice on things to look out for. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

My car: e90 335i, no distance control (explains the run-in).

Hmm, I wonder how you can avoid breaking those clips. I was looking at buying an Arctic bumper to replace mine from a member who was upgrading to an m-tech kit so I hope they don't break the clips.

i removed my rear bumper about 3 times and put it back on... if you dont want to break any tabs just take your time... you gotta kinda push in, up, and pull out and make sure u dont force anything... its kinda hard getting the tabs off the hooks so just try some tools.. i only broke one tab
