    Talking New SRI bumper and VXR insert

    Just picked up my new sri bumper and insert from stealers, will give it to a m8 tonight to take to work and spray and hopefully will be fitting after service on monday.
    how hard is it to fit insert to bumper and do i need to cut the brackets of the bumper so it fits flush.
    Thanks

    I had to remove 2 of the brackets for the SRi insert to fit mine, apart from that is should be a straight fit (unless you are also fitting a VXR bumper extension, in which case fit the insert before the extension)

    cheers m8 just wondering what the insert brackets clip onto as there is no other brackets once i cut off the 2 on the bumper, or do they clip in like the front if that makes sense.

    hi m8 £295 for bumper and £41 for insert inclusive of vat and quoted £60 spray as its already primed from one bodyshop, but need the skirts and front lip colour coded which requires preparation £200 all in from a secondary source mainly a friend of a friend who works for volvo and will do it as a private job.

    I had to fit mine past the VXR trim already fitted as part of the XP kit, I bought mine for £20 off of spoons, so it was already sprayed, all the clips had been cut off too. It was a hell of a job feeding it in past the VXR trim, had to cut thre trim done even more to make new tabs & soften the plastic with a heat gun, so in effect the only thing holding mine is the VXR trim & two tie wraps though the holes in the insert. Having said that it's been on for 20,000miles with no problems
