    GM Tuning Bumper

    Has anyone bought and fitted this bumper yet?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...QQcmdZViewItem

    If so whats the quality and fit like?

    Also would this look much too deep with standard skirts and rear??
    cheers

    looks like GSi bumper but with a few tweeks and its made out of fibreglass so will last ooohh about 5 seconds..... quality of Fg parts is normaly very low (i know ive had a bumper and spoiler off ebay and both were crap and a waste of money)
    wouldnt bother at all. either get an irmscher splitter for yours or upgrade to GSI, SRI-T, coupé or something

    I wouldn't get anything from there chap.

    I ordered a bumper from them, it took approximatley 4 weeks to arrive, and when it did, the bumper was absolutley huge and very poor quality.

    It's as if they're modelling a new bumper off their latest bumper, instead of replicating it off the initial model. So every new bumper they make they're getting bigger and bigger.

    That's doesn't really make sense I know

    are they really that bad? im just poor but would ideally love a GSi bumper!

    dont people buy the JDL bumpers im sure they are fibreglass also?

    so i guess there is no point in buying an irmscher replica either?

    cheers for replies guys

    Do your best to save up mate. A second hand GSi bumper will cost around 200-300 notes or buy a brand new bumper without the fogs and mesh, it'll set you back around the same.
