If it is a pre-facelift then buy a tte front grille like mine, otherwise Smoftah can tell you about taking the front Badge off as he has been through all of that when he got the compressor front bumper for his D4D.

As for removing the calipers, I seem to remember there being 2 bolts holding them on so it's really easy to remove them. Check out nrgizerbunny's guide for replacing the brakes as that has a photo guide on doing it all :)

the Badge is fairly easy to take off, i did mine on my pre face lift n sprayed it black, all u need to do is take the grill off which is bout ten mins work with a few bolts then the Badge jst clips off from behind be gentle tho or else it may snap on ya,as with calipers cant help ya with that one not looked at them yet but will be doin next weekend when i hopefully put some new pads on the front,

if you follow my guide on how to take the brakes apart, that'll get all the bolts out, the only additional thing is to undo the flexy hose with the brake fluid in it.
