    i have one fitted(its a witter one)and what a poxy job it is to fit as well.In the metal channel bit of the bumper you will see a pressed half circle bit-thats the bit that needs cutting out and the bumper bit(which is black) to match.Then you will have the fun bit to get the boot lid/estate door to close cos it hits the bumper.........................good luck and hope this helps.

    Yaseen,
    Sounds like he had a Witter towbar fitted. I have one my TDI and that sounds about the size of the whole I had to cut. Pretty small really and you should be able to repair it. Otherwise how about a centre exit exhaust like the Boxster!?!

    Dont say the word boxter to me!! Trying to find some boxter calipers cheap- not easy!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif Don`t think a centre exhaust would suit the b5, im going for two small round exhausts on each side (done a photoshop and looks good!!)
