Also, if you do want to remove the headlamp assembly, it helps to remove the front rubber seal (it's just held in with clips) and undo the four bolts holding in the top of the bumper cover (directly above the kidney grills). This will allow you to flex the bumper cover a bit, making it much easier to wiggle the headlamps out of the car. It's not a nightmare; it's a 10 minute job to remove both, tops.

Some BMWs (the 1-series comes to mind) do require removal of the entire bumper cover to remove the headlamp assemblies. Fortunately, the E60 was not designed in such an annoying manner.
