    I was expecting to see a picture of a bumper at the side of the road, asking if anyone had lost it

    Just a cheapo fibreglass bumper, great if you like making your own brackets to fit bumper and fit foglights too.

    It's a fibreglass replica, the real ones are ABS plastic so a bit more sturdy.

    There is a few folk on here with reps, so hopefully they can tell you about fit, etc.

    This?


    No it won't shatter if you tap it. They're OK but pretty crap if you end up in a forceful bump but aslong as you're not, it's fine

    Exactly, just these will take a lot more damage as they're weaker than ABS plastic. I'd get a rep personally aslong as it was a half decent fit.
