    Default VXR insert/diffuser advice pls

    Right guys, on Tues im gona get the VXR insert installed and put the twin pipes on the car. Seen a few threads where some needed to cut bits off the bumper, I'd thought it was a straight swap for the SRi insert? What exactly do I need to do? Anyone give me mini instructoins for the facelift or some pics of instalation? do i need to purchase new clips etc beforehand? cheers in advance people

    all you will have to cut off is the moulded bracket's that will impeed the exhaust's, they are about 1'' wide and they get in the way..and you will also need a few new push rivit's to fix the end's to the bumper where they come around the edge, other than that it is a straight forward but tight fitting job...
