Hi

Im on the search for a front bumper. I will be recieving a euro 2 rear bumper soon and im trying to decide on the front bumper. I was thinking about the irmscher airdam front.

Where is the best place to buy a front bumper?

Thanks

I like the Rieger RS front, is that an extension on to an existing bumper?

Alright guys, just wondering how deep the Irmscher Airdam and the R&A bumpers are in comparison to standard bumper. I've got a really awkward driveway which won't allow me to go much lower than the standard one, if u could give me an idea it'd be great rather than me buying one and then smashing it on my drive as i get home from bodshop....lol!!

r+a and airdam are similiar priced
r+a is fibreglas
and airdam is plastic

r+a more prone to crack/smash etc since its fibreglass

Whatcolour is Daimo's car if it's a generic colour?

I love the Air Dam. Subtle but very very sweet.

It's about 350 from Leicestershire Motor Factors all in.

You get what you pay for - correct - its plastic (stronger) and is a perfect fit for the Corsa.

Not heard of Aurora Purple before - looks very nice

I think i have the worst driveway in the world. To get out i have concrete slabs and bricks to make the curve less steep.

That picture is with 16"s, on a 195/45 tyres, lowered -35mm at the front.

The front bumper is about as low as the bottom rubber strip, but hangs out forward more as opposed to rolling round underneath.

Cheers Daimo, think thats where my problem lies...the fact that it sticks out more at bottom than standard bumper cause thats what'll hit my drive. My driveway crosses a pavement then drops steeply onto a busy main road so any form of ramp is a no no....doh! maybe i could just reverse on and off always, pain in the arse but worth it i suppose.
