    As a rule of thumb with bodywork a good qaulity item will cost less to fit in the long run. So buy an orginal bumper and at the end you'll have a better one.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Fair point.
    But when a 2nd hand genuine front is £300+ and a replica is £100, you can save a lot. Especially if your handy with bodywork yourself...

    for a diyer there ok, but for someone to put it into the bodyshop it usually costs near enough the same to have a replica mounted, adjusted, prepped, sprayed, and fitted as it does a genuine to be sprayed and fitted

    plus you cant put grills/fogs in the replicas etc, and the towing eye is just an indent etc, usually one side is slightly larger then the other too haha

    However as said for a diyer, i personally think there an 'ok' buy
