    Gsi bumper and kerb?

    I will be getting a Gsi front bumper for my Coupe Turbo when I get round to it. The thing is the car lives on my driveway, but I don't have a dropped kerb. Will it catch when pulling off the drive and onto the drive? I was wanting to lower the car at some stage, but thats probably not going to happen til I get the dropped kerb sorted out sometime.

    maybe if you measured the height of the kirb, then someone else may know the height from the bottom of their gsi bumper to the road.. so then you would know if it clears.. ?

    Thats good to hear then . I will get the kerb done at a later date, it should have been done ages ago, with it being a drive on the rear of my house.

    Just check how much clearence your standard rubber splitter has. GSi bumper won't be a massive amount different to that.
