    Question gsi replica bumper?

    hi all not really sure where to put this post but here goes...

    been thinkin today (ouch) thinking of purchasing a gsi bumper,
    can't really afford a genuine one so thought along the lines of a fibreglass one,
    i have searched google, ebay but can't find anything apart from old links,
    does anyone know of a site or person selling one? i don't mind the work involved in order to get it to fit right it adds to the satisfaction looking at it once done,

    so if anyone can help me out that would be great, cheers dazzle

    The one Im planning to buy is from a seller on ebay. Everyone will tell you theyre rubbish but Ive seen some of them fitted and you cant tell the difference, so at the end of the day its up to how much you want to spend.

    Fairly easy fit was it? Was it the one that has a stud bonded on at the wings so it slots straight into the arch?

    i made the mistake of buying a fiberglass one, cost 120 for the bumper, 100 to get it sprayed and 70 for fogs and grills. hit a fox last week doing 50 and it COMPLETLEY shattared the front of the bumper and cracked most of the sides too, just bought a genuine one to replace it and the quality is so so much better that the crappy fiberglass replicas from ebay and fits so much better too.
