    basically i hit a small deer not too long ago and it damaged the front bumper. i have always toyed with the idea of giving it an sline makeover so i thought as its damaged might aswell start now.just wanted to know if i can literally just take off the standard one and replace for the sline bigger grill type or is there anything else that needs changing aswell?thanks in advance mr b

    Am I right in saying he's got an 8p1 and to fit the sline bumper you'd need different wings?
    Or is that just for the newer sline bumpers? I'm quite interested cos I prefer the sline bumper to the sport and loads pop up on eBay.

    funny thing is that there is a FAQ and no one uses it!


    they dont even read the whole thread! answers are in the thread and then the question gets asked again

    Sorry mate. I've read both before, but I've also read a post saying about needing new wings. Is this rubbish or is there a change on the 8p3 or something? :asskicking:

    Is the Fogs price includibg surrounds? I think there is a bloke on ebay selling the foglights and surrounds for 90, my mate just baught a bonnet for £100 so to be fair, it is a costly job but in my opinion the most effective appearance mod and really does make the front end stand out alot more!

    There's a fella on ebay selling front and back sport bumpers in red including fog surrounds and grill. It's only £50 with no bids atm, but he's
    based in bridgend, so it's a bit far for me to pick up. Don't know how to post the link or I would, sorry.

    Thanks for the offer ash. I'll keep an eye on it and tbh I might drive down if I get it. Works van and diesel card so it'd work out a lot cheaper
    than paying a courier. Your car looks good as it is Fran. Mines standard.

    the side repeaters are going to be flushed out and painted so it looks like 8P3 wings. car needs to go into the garage soon, just waiting on funds.
