2014 435i X-drive VRSF DP install difficulty

I attempted to get a jump on installing my downpipe today and it was going smooth until I was unable to remove the steel tray that directly blocks the DP from being visible under the car. I took the front underbelly protector but this steel tray will not budge. I've tried my impact and multiple other ways of taking it off and the bolts are not budging at all. Did anyone with a similar set up with the x-drive do it any other way? I've heard some went through the wheel well on the passenger side but as of right now, I am stuck at a stand still lol.

Thank you. I have seen a lot of youtube videos and none of those guys had to take the steel tray off but none of their vehicles were x-drive either so I don't know if there is a different way of doing it on x-drive vehicles. I've called shops around me and they're quoting me 4-5 hours of labor and around $500-700 for the install of the downpipe.
