easy peasy btw get the H1.. they have better output then the D2S
Pretty accurate time estimates there. The bumper cover removal takes 20 minutes the first time and 10 minutes any time after that. Removing the headlights and taking them apart- 30-40 minutes for the first one and 10 minutes for the second one. Baking them apart, doing the actual retrofit, and re-assembling them- 1 hour for the first one, 30-40 minutes for the second.
Running and wiring the relay harness takes about 10 minutes (not counting the bi-xenon part, which I was too lazy to do) with the bumper cover off.
Re-install of the lights and bumper cover is a 30-minute affair. Just test them out BEFORE you put the cover back on the car.
