    Hi guys sorry for another M-sport bumper fitting but I need a question answering, I have gone a search and couldn't find anything specific, I may be wrong.
    My query is, I have bought a genuine Mtec 2 sport bumper for me SE saloon, I have the sport brackets, test fitted it today and it was a struggle, I know SE bumpers have to clip in 'secondary brackets' (long black clippy thing) just below the indicator light.
    Well the only way this bumper was goin on was to break it off, is that bad? I assume the sport bumper don't need them as it was only an obstruction.
    I couldn't find anything detailing this problem, am I right in thinking from SE to sport, I need the skin, white sport brackets, ducts, grilles and mouldings but can use the SE's aluminum carrier on the sport bumper? Is that all thats used to hold these bumpers on?
