    reading his feedback it appears to be a rather good fit for a copy..

    is the GSI bumper any deeper (as in closer to the ground) than the regular coupe bumper?

    quite fancy one of these to be honest

    these fibreglass bumpers usually require side mounting points to be made up for them, they dont have tow eye covers and the foglight grill areas usually need work. but for the cash bash on!

    i thought about this myself but the seller was pretty vague when i asked him for details and pics of the side mounting points - seeing as these are the parts that regularly fall apart i wanted to be sure the quality of the mountings were good.......his reply put me off therefore i didnt take the plunge

    if u can see the part in person before u buy then id defo advise it, if buying blind with no proof then i wouldnt risk it UNLESS of course u know someone who works in a bodyshop and could make it fit and stay fitted!
