    GSi bumper on coupe, spare coupe bumper

    Please can someone confirm that the GSI bumper goes straight onto the coupe turbo no problem. i have searched the the archives but never actually just got yes it does anywhere for the GSi on the coupe turbo.

    I bumped the front bumper on the drivers side corner when reverse parking and a car came by and caught it, it took some paint off leaving what looked like big horrible scratches. You can't catch ur nail in it becasue it is still perfectly unmarked but needed painting to make it better.

    Due to a communication error in their part I have sourced a new genuine vx GSi bumper for £180 without the fogs and the paint shop said they will not charge me for what they done already, they will fit and paint a new bumper for free, just need the bumper. So Sorted!!

    I am havin it fitted on Friday i think.

    If the answer to my question is yes it just fits on without any extra effort then i will have a coupe turbo europa blue front bumper which has been repaired and painted in the corner lookin for a new home.

    From what i've heard yes it will, but i was told something about some kind of plastic support that the coupe needs to secure it. Its available through Vx, and the part number was posted on here a while ago.

    Hope this helps

    Not sure mate.

    The paint shop messed me about by mistake and just by luck a one off deal landed in my hands at the right time. Never though much about doing it before cos they cost too much but with this deal I would be stupit to say no.

    If you buy a GSI bumper with all the brackets, Grills, Foglamps, Wiring harness's, etc, you will not see change of £400.

    A GSI bumper on It own costs £212+vat. BUt its usless without the grills and skid plate thats also needed for fitment.

    GSi bumper looks better on a coupe than on a hatch in my opinion!

    It was made originally for the Coupe before the GSI was ever launched, Ill put my car on it! If you look at the front bumper and how the bottom edges are Identicaly styled to the coupe's side skirts you will see what I mean! I'm going to hazzard a guess that they designed it for the coupe, but never used it, so when the GSI came along, they stuck it on that instead!
