    Cant use standard mesh's unless you trim bumper and glue them in, it wotn have the towing eye hole, one clip of a curb the whole lots ****ed, and excessive painting costs... to be honest, your only looking at an additional £50 for a real bumper when everythings paid and fitted, as it will also need to be adjusted slightly to fit, and mounts made for it

    well the seller does offer a very competitive painting and fitting service

    unfortunately the reply i got about the arch mounting points wasnt the most convincing so i decided to say no at this point in time..... might have a change of heart in the future though

    certainly not worth discounting it first without contacting the seller for an exact fitted price

    I'd buy either a used one off here in the classifieds or bought a brand new one from LMF

    thats all well and good if u can afford the stupidly high pricetag but its certainly worth considering the cheaper alternatives fully - and i dont just mean listening to the usual fibreglass horror stories and jumping on the bandwagon and assuming its crap!

    The used ones on here get snapped up in a flash and the new ones are just stupidly expensive then theres the cost of paint etc..... it certainly all adds up

    if u can afford the real thing brand new then go for it - i know i cant at this point in time considering i need to rebuild the entire car lol

    delta styling is the old Carlton automotive body kit specialist they are good bumpers and they will fit 4 about £50 if that helps know a few people who have used them but i would personally stick to genuine gm and understand about the price tag
