Right, the latest and hopefully finally stages of the exterior of my car,
My car currently looks like this..
Only cnage from rear pic is I now have Hella afterburners with clear lenses fitted
Now at the minute the GSi front is damaged, mounting lugs in wings are broke, there is a crack at the bottom of the bumper and in general it also needs a respray.
I had bought a Coupe' front bumper with a Rieger splitter on the front, I was going to have the splitter smoothed in and the airdam removed so I could fit black mesh to it, but I still really love the GSi front and it gets so many positive comments from people looking at the car,
So I rang Steve @ to get a price for the bare frame of the GSi front bumper, I can have this sprayed and transfer my grilles & fogs over to the new bumper, the frame would cost £229.13 from LMF and would mean that I'd have a brand new front bumper.
I already have a set of GSi sideskirts to be painted and go on
Next is the rear, now the car has a smoothed tailgate and at present there is no real place to accomadate the numberplate, I.e a recess with lighting. I want the job to be done properly, I don't just want it bodged with a coupe of stick on lights etc. so instead of chopping up a perfectly good GSi rear bumper, I've put it up for sale.
For it's replacement, I'm 90% sure I'm going to go for the Lumma LPC-R rear bumper with number plate recess (as pictured below) as although it is aftermarket it still ties in with the chunky lines of the GSi kit and will accomadate my number plate.
I got quoted £285 inc VAT for this bumper from www.tuning.co.uk in November, rang them back today and they said it was now £343 INC VAT, again comments welcome and any gen on where I could find one the same or similar, cheaper than this please let me know.
Only other plans for the exterior are to have the door handles smoothed and have some nicer mirrors fitted, also change the wheels.
Comments appreciated, cheers
