Im running 16's and am going for the same look, the rieger kits prob your best bet unless you can get an irmsher airdam front! You wanna be looking at steinmetz, dietrich, lumma and FK if you wanna go with something else, keep it smooth and subtle, il try get pics of mine to show what ive done so far,

Its pretty straight forward to fit the over bumpers but they can be a bit tight to get on, certainly need more then one pair of hands.

Once the stick-a-flex is on the new bumper apron get a mate to help you line it up on your original and then pop 4 or 5 screws through the Rieger apron into the standard bumper underneath . These are just to hold it until the mastic sets, once it dries you can take the screws out and fill the holes.

chris_uk: Where did you get your stuff from? Im pretty sure Rieger dont use fibreglass mate.

uprated: So long as you get the right kit for the year of the car it doesn't matter. You can have the black part of the original bumper smoothed and colour coded at the same time as have ing the rest of the kit sprayed.

Cheeky: Your not the first person to have the Riger kit fitted are you.

Maybe some of the old stuff for the mk2 astra and calibra. I doubt any modern "offical" stuff is made from fibreglass.

Why would they use both?
