Default VW/Westfalia hitch install ?'s

So I have a 2013 Lux model and it did not come with a hitch, but I have sourced one from a salvage yard (holy cow this thing is beef!!) and a new wiring harness/control module (also factory VW parts). The hitch has the Westfalia sticker on it, but it's a traditional US spec 2" square receiver I have seen on many of these vehicles including my friends base 2016 model

Aside from my service writer friend saying I will likely need to have my vehicle "flashed" to allow the trailer lights to work it should be very simple to install.

Question is, does anything on the stock bumper need to be trimmed to fit the hitch? Planning to attempt the install this week.

Installed it last night, no trimming needed. Easy peasy lemon squeezy
