    Arrow Astra MK4 GSI Pattern Front Bumper

    Has anyone on here fitted a MK4 Astra Gsi pattern part bumper at all?

    Im just curious to know if they fit well and are fairly solid, i've found someone that will do them for £110 painted to any specific astra colour and delivered.

    He tells me they are an exact duplicate, but you have to buy the mesh bits still seperately from vauxhall which is normal.

    Who knows?

    For that price surley its a bargin...

    This is the problem im having, i cant find anyone that has actually tried fitting one. I think people tend to steer clear of them, i'll ask him if they are fiber glass or plastic and see what he says.

    Materials

    Andy, i spoke to the guy selling the parts again and he informs me they use the same materials as the manufacturers of the original gsi bumpers.

    what do you reckon?

    I need someone elses opinion so ive got someone else to blame if it goes tits up and dont fit lol..

    I think any replica bumper ether from GRP or plastic will need some sort of mods, if it is plastic it might be a better fit than a GRP one.

    Question

    Right...sod it, im going to go with it i think.. ive just had a lite impact in the front anway so im going to be tapping and bending my front bit about anyway to put it back together.

    i think for £110 painted and deliverd how can i complain, anyway whats the worst that can happen? Anyone!!! lol



    I think im going to get it, let my car wear for a while then get another one when one comes up.

    I cant remember how much the grill bits were now, someone did post the prices from Vauxhall for the 3 x grills and fogs.


    Should i get the SRI-T Bumper or GSI?

    He does them for the same price..
