    Anyone looking at buying this ill make sure your aware that isnt an actual pic of the item fitted. Its just a photoshop that i did, The threads on here somwere.

    Report the seller mate, if it is a photoshop then they aren't being truthful and showing the actual item for sale.

    Sellers do it all the time when advertising bodykits/bumpers etc.

    Someone did that using one of my pictures as well. Cheeky sods!

    I read the description, who in there right mind would buy that anyway?

    bumper does not come with any mounting brackets / fixings screws or mesh


    I can imagine that'll be a right ball-ache to fit.

    yep just like my prodrive front bumper which i bought brand new from vauxhall, but stupidly left it for nearly 14 months in the box, then took it out of the box to take to the paint shop, got it back and then decided to check the fitting kit was there (which it wasnt)!!

    you can get the screws and stuff from a local parts place, but will have to get a few sizes as fitting is trial and error. the side of my front bumper still pops out a bit now

    As said to a couple of people that this has happened to......:

    Take 2 mins to set up a fake ebay acvout... Set max bid to 500 quid, then forget your username and leave the buyer sat waiting for your replies haha

    Or in this case buy it

    but then youve got the odd chance of an idiot that has no idea of how much something is worth to bid £501!!! lol very unlikely to happen i know lol

    whats the problem tho? he aint being untruthfull about the item is he?

    all he is doing is using a image he has found on google

    "The bumper (never been fitted or painted & made by fibreglass"


    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!
