    Gsi Replica Bumpers

    Just curious if any one on here has the gsi replica bumper off ebay?
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...d=p3286.c0.m14
    this one.
    Just wondering what the fit and quality is like?? I know its not gonna be as good as the standard vaux but it is a lot cheaper. It will be going on a coupe also if that makes a difference??
    Thanks
    Craig

    The actual bumper itself is onli £160 from vauxhall. Its the grills and the fog lights that bump the price up.

    I wouldnt get a replica to honest, you can spot em a mile off. The towing eye cover dosnt remove, its just a circle on the bumper. The grills and fogs dont fit, feibreglass bumpers are usually a bad fit and if you catch it on anything it'll just fall apart.

    I paid £160, but that was cost price when I worked there. Get someone whos in trade club to get you one.


    The fogs are what make it expensive. You can get a brand new one for a lil bit more than people want for them on ebay damaged.

    Craig Vaux al from swansea had one on his van and ended up changing it for a genuine gm part. There not worth the hassle they require to get them fitting snug. Go for a genuine GSI bumper and get some black mesh and cheap fogs from ebay, Can be done for less than £200 all in and wouldn't look that much different.

    The coupe fogs don't fit btw as the GSI fogs are round and a completley different shape.

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though
