    Front Airdam/Irmscher Bumper and Fog Lamp DILEMA!!



    Ok all need your help and advise!

    Got an Astra SXI '99 3 Door and been offered an Irmscher Astra G Front Bumper at a very reasonable price I really can't turn down but slight issue! Front Fogs! Standard ones on mine wont have any correct fitting on it; I could either do the following..

    -Make a new frame for them which will fit them on (long and in-accurate)

    -Put the mesh provided on the fog light holes and remove my fog lights completelly (no fogs!)

    -Buy the Imscher fog lamp kit and put them on (costing a serious BOMB!)

    -Get the Rieger fog lamp kit and hope they fit (may not fit!)

    -Get the ICC fogs and hope they fit!! (may also not fit!)

    You can look at what bumper it is at this site as well... http://www.lmfvauxhall.com/prodCatal...spx?prodId=582

    Anyone who has any knowledge of what will and wont fit on and cheap places to get them and what you think let me know!!!

    Many thanks everyone,

    Breeza

    Dont bother wih the ICC or the Reiger ones you would be a million times better off buying them from Halfords. The Irmisher fogs are great but as you say at a price they are made by CRIBE but you do get the brackets., wiring and mesh with them.

    Get the airdam and get the irmscher fog lights. It may be expensive but imo it's the best bumper you can get for the MK4 and needs the correct fog lights to keep it sexy.

    Selling your current bumper/fogs could go some way to funding it

    Thanks MatG,

    Which ones would I need to buy from halfords then and is there anyway of buying direct off Cribe or maybe just getting the brackets and using a different set of spot fogs? Iv got the mesh, can easily get wiring as got a guy that works for vauxhall but he can only get a slight reduction on Irmscher bits but gonna see what we can get.

    Anyone interested in buying my old bumper and fogs then!!

    been having a look at the following and thinking of just picking up one of the sets and fitting them.. i could pretty much fit any set of spots easily on it aslong as their small enough to tuck in nicely
