Thanks for the replies!

The reason I'm considering dropping the engine is the subframe would be getting removed too and all suspension etc, that with the extra height of the car would possibly make more sense removing from below?

But I also agree from above is the traditional route and gives no problems...

I'll get the car high first, and see what the clearance is I think. Axel stands and sleepers will give me about 600mm height raised I think.

Why do Mazda make the bumper removal so hard! Snapped bolts aside and the fact the top two bolts are so corroded that I'll struggle to remove them... Oh and the wing to.bumper bolts were so corroded and tight it's impossible to get to them and they just spin and spin...

Not a good day..
