    Have to say - I disagree.

    My Lotus Carlton rear bumper has been repaired after the car it came from was torched.

    The spare front one has been smacked fairly hard on one corner and can be repaired.


    I doubt any plastic item would have survived either acts of recklessness!

    GRP can at least be repaired. ABS is a nightmare. Caravans used to have their front and rear panesl made of GRP. Seldom give trouble, and if it did get accident damage was generally repairable. In recent years they switched to ABS panels. Loads have cracked, and they have to be replaced. Repairs are not possible in this material. I would avoid.

    Honestly irmscher plastic ones are about the best your gonna get. Obviously if hit hard enough it will break but I hit a rabbit with mine and all it did was crack the paint (due to the flexibility)

    Also the genuine irmscher stuff fits like a glove

    My Mrs thought my front irmscher splitter was a bump guard for 2 years must have hit it about 30 times that she told me about lol touch wood its still in one piece just a few small scratches but the fit and flexibility of it has Im sure assisted its survival
