If it's anything like the E9x then it's an absolute nightmare to remove without breaking clips!

Are you sure you need to remove the bumper to fit the diffuser? I didn't on my F30!

You don't need to remove the bumper. Only the diffuser trim. There are about 4 bolts along the bottom and the top is just clipped in.

F32 here w/ M-Sport package. I added the M-Performance rear diffuser, no need to remove the bumper or exhaust, so simple.

That doesn't make sense, if you need to remove the bumper to fit a diffusor than the diffusor is shit. It should just clip and than bolt in.

Also a good tip is painting the right side behind the diffuser. My car is alpine white so the white showed, to solve that problem I just sprayed it black and the car looks great! Enjoy the diffuser, it's a huge difference!
