    Mate, I owe you a big thanks for your rear bumper mistake and posting up about it.
    I came that close to doing EXACTLY the same thing!

    Nope, you are not alone mate. Looking around I've seen some more up for sale as 3dr bumpers too.

    Yours is looking good now that you're there though mate.

    How hard did you find fitting the rear bumper??? Do it on your own??

    yeh mate ive got a cool idea for my rear rings , gonna stick the chrome ones on to a sheet of black vinyl , trim round then stick them on , does that make sense ? so there is like a gloss black backing under the chrome

    looks in fantastic condition - really good example! Glad to hear you are putting the rings back on the boot as it looks far too plain without them - i think they will make a big difference! Only thing i am not a fan of is the TT vents - they stand out a little to much for me! Much prefer the S3 ones
