    a replica will look fake no matter what, plus you would spend pretty much the diffrence in price trying to get it fitting correctly.
    second hand genuine front bumpers seem to gofor around £250 iirc. turbo chris usually has a few.
    someone correct me if im wrong but they mount up just the same as a normal bumper.

    Seconded. A mate has one. Fitted straight away and looks spot on.

    Can only tell if looking for part number printed on back lol

    I have heard a few stories of them not fitting properly but the barnsley guy one was fine

    the ones listed on ebay that say no fixings/mountings will take some work to fit
