    GSI bumper on a Coupe

    Anyone got any idea how much lower the GSi bumper is than the standard bumper when fitted on a Coupe?

    Isn't a straight fit to a coupe anyway.

    It's not a straight fit..?

    I thought it was a straight swap for the standard bumper...

    There are loads of people on here with a GSI bumper on a coupe (im so jealous of them!) and as far as I can see its a straight swap.

    Aren't the all the cars in the Mk4/G range the same upto the wing mirrors... i.e. bumper, wing panels and bonnet?

    Hmm... Now to source a bumper.

    I think I'll probably lower it first though then get a bumper in the new year.
