  3. Replacement rear bumper required T5

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi After putting a split in my recently painted bumper I'm after a replacement. Ive spotted eurocarparts are doing a special with up to 50% off so just over £100 for the primed unit.

  8. Splitter chop

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    After numerous snags of the low front splitter I've come to the conclusion that it needs to go to give me a bit more clearance at the front. Unfortunately the splitter and bumper seems to be one piece all the way up to the bonnet so i can't remove it without cutting it. Has anyone else cut this...

    I want to remove the chrome trim under the bumper DRL's so I can paint and refit. I take it they are just stuck on and have to be pried off carefully using some heat to soften the adhesive. Anyone done this previously who can share any tips?
