    New bumper - FMIC options?

    Hi all,

    Getting a new bumper for the ACT, just wondering what people reckon out of the two below?

    Also (reason its in the Turbo Forum) will a FMIC fit behind the reiger bumper with no modifications?

    GSi (everyone knows what they look like but hey!)



    Reiger:


    Going on the following car:


    Cheers,
    Nick

    Although its quite common i prefer the GSI one on a coupe, nice and subtle and looks great! Not sure on the FMIC though mate im sure someone will be able to help you

    Yeah thats why i'm thinking of going with reiger, everyones done the gsi, i know there will be a fair few with the reiger but no where near as many! Just hope the splitter doesn't get ripped off!

    . i got the irmy splitter on mine and i realy dont want to lower it, just the fear of hitting speed bumps. when i finaly get round to fitting a FMIC then i will de-slat the grill on the coupe bumper. just think the coupe bumpers look mint and dont need changing. Thats only my opinion of course.

    Yeah agree they're mint, but mine's not in a great shape, the guy before me failed to tell me that it had hit summat, which has snapped all the fog mounts on one side and put stress marks all over the back of it! Only found out when fitting the FMIC! So thought seeing as i want a new one i may aswell get one that wil hopefully house the fmic better!

    I have seen 2 reiger's and they both needed a little cutting to fit the front mounts.

    I guess it really depends on the size of front mount. Might not need cutting with a small one... but why have a small, when bigger is better.

    YAY! someone else who prefers the coupe bumper over the gsi one lol.

    soz for taking over but seeing as its the same subject.
    Would just de-slatting the coupe bumper mean that a fmic will fit? or would there need to be more work done to it?
