    It's as easy as fitting the standard one Andy. if you can take the old one off then you can fit the new one.

    I suggest that you fit the "skid pad" to the bumper with rivets before fitting the bumper to the car.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I see you have cut out the lower grills from your orginal bumper. I'd be more worried about the intercooler inlet/outlet pipes fouling the fog lamp housings.

    I'm sur eyou'll manage to sort it out though, the intercooler can be moved backwards can't it?

    You mayhave to cut away the edge of the foglight bits and either leave them or fibreglass them back up.

    You dont see any of it as the covers cover it all
