Can you just pull out the headlights like on the b6?

I think it's much more work to remove the air filter and the reservoir.. Than rather just taking off bumper.. J can take off the bumper with my eyes closed.. 10 min max...

For the passenger's side, did you just remove the air duct on the top or the entire assembly?

5-10 mins if you don't remove the bumper and do it this way - and you don't need as much work space either because you don't have a bumper laying around... just sayin

whole assembly - but its easier if you have an aftermarket intake ;-)
