    Astra Coupe,

    Need your opinion, please

    I recently bought this front bumper foolishly without seeing it first , but as we needed the car back on the road it got fitted, I personally don't like it and am thinking of changing it for the one in the pic at the bottom.
    Now the problem the wife (who's car it is) likes the bumper thats on there.
    If I could ask I would like your opinion either keep the first bumper (blue one that is now all meshed with led running lights) or save up and change to the second one (white one)



    So first or second one.

    Re: Need your opinion, please

    The gsi bumper is by a huge country mile the better bumper. As Rc said...drive it into a kerb.

    did you miss the thread about the first bumper ? lol

    yeah hands down second one every time, the person that made that first one should be taken out and just shot nothing else for it

    Re: Need your opinion, please

    While you're saving up to buy the gsi bumper, why not buy a standard bumper or a coupe bumper? Theyre about 30-60 depending on condition etc

    Re: Need your opinion, please

    Cheers for the replies, think the consensus of opinion is it needs changing, well it will have to wait till after the summer now as funds are tied up elsewhere. So everyone will have to mind their step not to trip or hope for snow

    Re: Need your opinion, please

    Sorry but the bumper in the 1st pic is everything that's wrong about modifying a car. The gsi bumper looks minty. I would probs personaly stick the numberplate up in the window and run without a bumper until you can afford a replacement lol.

    Re: Need your opinion, please

    Why not put your one up for sale and see how much you get for it, there will be some blind git who will buy it to chav his motor up the proceeds of which would go towards your replacement in the mean time as above plate in window and drive it au natural.

    you'll get pulled for fun with no bumper on, its classed as dangerous due to sharp edges and such.
