    Something missing on this coupe rear bumper! Can you guess???

    Hey Guys,

    Found a good looking rear bumper for the coupe for cheap. Only problem is they obviously havent thought it out very well.

    No prizes for the first person who guesses what is missing from the picture.

    Well done you two!!!

    Where would you put it???? The hole's they already have in the bumper are too high to fit the exhaust through and if you put it underneath it would end up scraping over every bumper as far as I can tell!

    Joy tuning are making some good looking cheap stuff for the Astra at the moment. Shame its not better thought out though. lol

    yup - i'd be tempted and then figure out some nice lookin zorst...maybe thru the mesh or following the contours of the centre part (maybe with a VXR look to them)
    or howabout one big letterbox style exhaust neatly fitted into the central gap angled at both ends! oh well maybe not

    Hell of a lot of work Brett to recess an exhaust properly behind that mesh. Does look good though.

    I do prefer to see an exhaust though. The VXR's one looks the best.

    Keep an eye on joy tuning. Im gonna buy one of there front diablo bumpers for my coupe really soon.

    You get what you pay for at the end of the day. Its cheap, and I know some of the cheap GRP bumpers and skirts can be a pain to fit, but thats the risk you always take.

    When I spoke about the JDL kits before people kept going on about how hard they were to fit, but then I found 4 people who had them fitted to there car and found no problems.
