    Default VXR Bumper

    Just wondering whether it's worth getting one of these over an SRI one (rear). The black bit on the VXR bumper looks miles better than the black bit on an SRI one, what's the price difference? Can you perhaps just get the black bit on its own? Will it fit into an SRI bumper?

    you can get just the insert from the dealers about £40 but the only thing is is that is has 2 cut outs for twin exhausts

    By saying the black bit do you mean the bit that surrounds the exhausts? That bit is colour coded on the VXR but yes it does fit onto the sri bumper and costs about 40 quid.

    Anther difference is that the vxr bumper has a lower skirt that goes around the exhausts too and is about 140 quid.

    The bumpers are identical underneath though

    Oh is that all? I've seen some SRI bumpers on ebay without the black bit, might aswell do that then! Do they come black or do they come primed? I'm after getting a dual exit eventually, so that's all good news to me mate!

    Kinda hard to explain where I mean, well you got the bumper, which is colour coded to the car, and then there's like a black bit in the middle which expands to almost the "corners" of the car kinda thing, and they have cut outs for the exhausts (SRI's with the one cut out)

    Yeah that's what i'm gonna do! Got some SRI side skirts and a bootlip spoiler, just need the bumpers and i'm ready to paint! How much is the paint gonna cost for all that do you reckon? My dad's got a spray gun, so i'm gonna try do it myself, if it fails there's a body refurbisher over the road, though that's gonna be costly
