    New Kit or front

    After another episode with a dodgey repair to my front bumper and the fact every time the road raises my buper catches it, drove into a car park and the ground was a bit rough and the bumper get caught and it split cracked again, only a slight tap but the repair done by the other bodyshop was very dodgy indeed. So Danni has ordered me to either get a new kit, rasie it up, or put it back to standard.
    I like the bumper I have got, can not think of one that will work on the car.
    What would you do?

    I want to bud but this wedding is being done with new car money lol,
    Over the last few month three tyres replaced, 4th one today, Speedo broke, engine managment light on killing fuel, no power, cuts out frequently, seats thread bear seat hight adjuster gone. So even before I get rid of it , I need to spend some corn getting it right for sale.
    So I may as well keep it for another year

    Why don't ou just get the full rieger bumper because the lower lip spoiler on a standrad bumper is lower then the full bumper. PLus the full bumper will match the rest of your styling.

    Put it back to standard, nice Irmscher kitted stuff - can probably get it second hand, sprayed up and fitted, would look smart and be better every day for what you want

    Tough one mate, Is the bumper u got not repairable properly, if so do that..

    U want the cheapest option to keep it running for a year, as uve prob got plans to get rid by the sounds of it..

    I dont think any other bumpers will sit any higher ect for Gsi or SRiT bumpers....Or even go irmsher airdam... at least there all plastic..not sure if they will match your skirts & rear bumper though..

    Your desicion @ the end of the day..

    your not happy with the car so theres no point in shelling out more money for a kit - i would sell what you can and put it to std till you can afford the car you want.
