    I thinks it's easier to fit a genuine gsi bumper.

    The copies i've seen doesn't got the fittings, so you will be needing to make it fit and drill holes to make the grills fit and such..

    The genuine GSi bumper should have the light washer integrated into them i believe

    Copy = a lot cheaper (less than £100 without fogs & grills & UNPAINTED) BUT they are more "brittle" & likely to crack etc plus they dont always fit properly

    Genuine = perfect fit to the original bumper fittings & a lot more flexible, look better aswell.... BUT they cost an arm & a leg... (£300+ for a decent 1 with fogs etc)

    Basically, by the time you have bought a copy, made it fit, made the grill & fogs fit, then paid for it to be sprayed ud be looking @ around £200-£300 anyways... so you may aswell save up & wait for the perfect genuine GSi bumper to come up in your colour including all the grills fogs etc....
