    Postage is bummer I'll admit, but could still work out a fair bit cheaper if you can get it at a decent price.

    Bumper arrived today, seems pretty good for the money. Foggy's seem ok and the bumper trims are all of good quality. Have dropped it off to get painted today - £80. Pick it up end of the week.

    How do I remove the old bumper? Easy job?

    Doesn't look too bad, quick postage too.

    I presume you are replacing a non sport bumper? Have you already got the cooling ducts or do you know if the standard ones will fit?

    Same here, yep I think the ducts are for the brakes. I've seen them come up during my ebay searches for sport bumpers and the description said they were required when fitting a sport bumper....would be interested to know if the definitely are.

    Seen tons of replica non oem bumpers for loads of cars but have always been told quality will be poor (and infact have seen them on cars damage).

    Will be interested to see how it comes along. Good luck.

    The skin itself is pretty sturdy and appears very well made. There aren't any rough edges and it's finished pretty well.
    The only one concern I have is the top of the bumper (you can see it on the first pic) where the bonnet would sit, it's not perfectly flat but may sit better once the bumper reinforcement is in it.
    I just hope it fits ok.

    Looks very tidy. If it all goes well when painted and looks the part, I for one would be tempted if it goes well.
