Lightbulb Front Bumper Side Air Duct Modification

Not really a fan of the stock side air ducts on the 135i. I feel like it isn't as aggressive as it could be. Has anyone done this to their 135i? Looks like you just cut the vertical plastic vents. Do you have to remove the bumper to get to these side air ducts?

Super easy to do, and no you don't have to remove the bumper. take a hacksaw blade, or if you have one, a dremel and just cut it out. Some light sanding and you will never know if was there.
