I just took a look at the instructions again and both bumpers are overlays. For the side, it looks like the old black pieces come off and the side trim replaces it.
I've talked it over with a friend and also saw pictures of a lower trim piece for a Honda Pilot that my wife wanted that is essentially the same thing (where you remove pieces of the original bumper and overlay the new piece on top of the old). The cutting isn't too bad, you'd have to *really* screw up to mess it all up.
I may not do this until next summer and see if the funds are easier to get. Also, I may need to spruce up the old Pilot first! My other line of thinking is trying to pick up a kit when the Compass is canceled - it sure sounds like the MK line is going to die
