Smolck, dropping the front subframe just requires removal of your reinforcement brace #3 and once that is out, just 4 bolts to the subframe goes into the chassis. Granted before you do this you will also want to unbolt the engine mount bolts that go into the subframe and support the engine from the top. Use a jack with a 2x4 underneath the subframe to lower it.

EDIT: if you have Xenons do not forget to disconnect the level sensor. You also have to disconnect the steering guibo!
