    Question Bumper Fitment?

    Im getting my car fixed at long last and i now just need to decide which bumper to put on. I was thinking an aftermarket one at first but now im thinking of getting from vauxhall. I was just wondering everyones views on putting a bumper such as a GSi Front onto "not a GSi" if you understand me?

    I am also keen on a coupe front with an irmsher lip but im still undecided wether it looks good or not.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Im thinking of getting the GSi bumper. Its the Rieger Concept kit I believe. Im trying to make my sport a bit like a GSi but it wont be the same. Go for it or failing that, go for the SRi T bumper.

    A GSI or Coupe bumpers look great. Im thinking of getting a GSI bumper for my coupe. However, IMO on a hatch, although they would look good, they might look a bit off key if your thinking of keeping your std read bumper and if you don't colour code your side bump strips

    Coupe bumpers look great on a hatch, but there are more splitters out there than the Irmy one, which IMO looks awful.

    i think that would look spot on, the bumpers look good as standard and they add a bit of depth to the front end, have you got the rear GSI/SRI diffuser? that would then balance the front to the back?.................

    I have an irmsher rear Lip on the back already so its brought down a bit by that.
    I quite like the 5 door GSi Idea haha

    I dont think i would colour code the strips either. they are Carbon Fibre
    What other splitters are available for the coupe front? if anyone had pics that would be great
