    Non geniune Gsi front bumper help please :)

    Hi guys, have any of you bought one of these bumpers from Ebay?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...3A1%7C294%3A50

    Do they fit ok? Any problems? (For a MK4)

    Also, I would like to have the Gsi fogs on there too, but obviously it doesn't come with the mesh/honeycomb stuff, is there a place where I can buy just the mesh moulding for either side of the bumper for where the fogs go? Because I presume that's what the fogs attatch to and not the actual bumper itself?

    These are the fogs I would get..

    I would get a proper Gsi bumper from LMF but I'd rather try and save 200notes.

    Lol, soz for being a n00b, any help would be appreciated, thanks for reading

    From what I've heard, fitting is a little awkward, and the material is quite cheap
    But you get what you pay for
    Give it a go, and let us know how you get on!!!!

    Hmm, I would love to just get the genuine one, but I dunno if I can justify £400 just on a bumper lol.

    I don't actualy have an Astra just yet, but I'm just making plans and thinking ahead so I can crack on once I do get one lol

    I would save up for a genuine one mate, alot less hassle in the end.
    You sometimes see them pop up for around the £250 mark second hand, but you have to be quick then.
    Have you thought of the sri-t front bumper, I think i saw one advertised on here for sale earlier today!

    Hmm yeh, well like I say I'm not in the position to buy one just yet but I'm planning ahead .


    On a slight different note, is the rear bumper in this pic just a standard bumper but with these added to it?...

    I think the bumper in the pic may be a sri-t bumper, but im sure yours would look the same with these added to it!
    I may be wrong tho and I'm sure someone will correct me if I am.

    Thanks again guys, is it only you two that actually answer things around here? Aha :P

    I'm thinking, the front bumper I'll probably just have to save up and fork out for the Gsi front bumper, it'll be worth it in the end I guess.

    Rear bumper, I'll just try that ebay link I posted.

    My inspiration is the Astra in the pic I posted, guna cost me about 2k to get it looking the same if not better than that

    The SRIT rear bumper a standard one with bits added on. So if you got that one off bay it would look the same
