    XP Kit

    Does anyone know if a 3dr XP front spoiler will fit a pre fracelift 5dr bumper? and are the 5dr sideskirts the same length and have the same mounting points as a 3dr?

    I did some investigation into this as I prefer the rear upper return on the 3 door side skirts to the 5 door side skirts, and the short answer is no for both side skirts and bumper splitters.

    However, because the side skirts are plastic they could be trimmed to fit, since the 3 and 5 door irmscher skirts are apparently the same item and same size. So, the 3 door skirts could fit the 5 door if trimmed correctly...

    I never ended up doing this however because I was too lazy to try

    As for the front bumper skirt they are a different shape and different part number - same as the rear, so they won't fit. Someone was trying to suggest they would but the 3 door bumper is far more curved...

    Hope this helps!

    Theres two replicas on ebay you can get - one like the irmscher 3 parter and one like the xp one. to be honest I wouldn't be putting cheap ones on the front - its the most likely to get damaged - could get away with it on the back or side skirts though (there are irmscher replica skirts on ebay also)

    That is true also - if you are wanting cheap but genuine keep an eye out on ebay for complete bumpers with the splitter attached (they do come up occaisionally quite cheap!). Then just whip off the splitter and get painted and bonded to your bumper!
