    I doubt it mate, the pic of the car shows the JDL astra showcar, and JDL make fiberglass kits,

    i'd say it was a JDL fiberglass GSI replica, check eBay if you want the best price mate, as JDL sell direct on there

    not going to be genuine Vauxhall unless they're making a loss of about £100 on each...

    as Asim said, its the JDL pic they're using so I assume its a JDL bumper... in other words a cheap fibreglass copy.

    Anything wrong with having a cheap fibreglass copy? I just like the bumper not trying to copy anything lol - but if I need to get a better one for a reason other than 'its a copy' then I guess I will have too!

    iirc fiberglass is just bad for cracking as there isnt any give, jst snaps when a plastic bumper would bend and pop back,
    a bumper isnt a part id want in fiberglass tbh,

    nothing wrong with it mate, its just that the quality wont be the same as ABS plastic,

    that means little bumps, scrapes and touches on speedbumps can wreck the whole bumper
