    Default Question about the bumper...

    (Ignore plate numbers, random from autotrader)

    I've just bought a facelift bumper, same as this one pictured - And am replacing the prefacelift like the one shown...

    Q is, the plastic part along the bottom, the bottom centre bumper grill(?), and fog light surrounds... will they fit the new bumper or do i need to replace them all?

    Many thanks

    What colour is your old bumper, and what condition is it in? I could do with one, in 2AU colour

    Can you replace a pre-facelift bumper with a facelift one? Aren't they totally different?

    You just need to look at where the bumper meets the wings to know this is a major task.


    IMHO, not worth it, trade the car for a facelift

    Its just a play thing at the moment, you know, boys and their toys... Its my first car so instead of getting the Nova and adding a dump valve, I thought I'd buy something nice and play with it... I'm going to be driving it til it dies anyway! LOL. The bumper I'll be removing is Silver, not sure which tone, its a 54 plate Signum Design...I think its the same as in the picture above. I've managed to get the WHOLE front section now, via ebay, except front panel from VX, for less than £580 all in. Just booked in to have bonnet and wings painted, so that's a another £300 "cash"... So a week on friday she'll be finshed... WOOT!
