    second that.

    and also many fiberglass bumpers come with no mounts or markings/cut outs for the bumper to be bolted to the car.


    i have the plastic version of this bumper and its top quality.

    plastic will always be dearer, but it will out last any fiberglass ones

    That looks suspiciously like a copy of a reiger one. As said above fibreglass, unless done properly be very brittle, a poor fit and easily damaged - it pays to avoid copies.

    Try www.tuning.co.uk for a genuine reiger ones (in plastic) - you'll pay a bit more but the quality will be spot on. Always top service from that company BTW
