request: fitting an //M rear bumper

Post by sk93 » Mon Apr 14, 2014 12:42 am

Maybe a stupid question, but if you don't ask, you don't know right? :thumbsup:

Did a search, but could only find info on fitting a facelift rear, or an //M front bumper to a pre-facelift.


so here's my question: Do I need any special parts / different mounting brakets / etc to fit a rear //M bumper to my pre-facelift 3.0i?

Excluding the lights, light cover thingies and the bumper itself, do I need ANYTHING else?
:zzzz:

I had to fabricate a way of attaching the lower center part of the bumper to the stock mounts... Used a bit of plastic to secure it to two points otherwise the bumper flexes too much.

I cut the bottom of my old bumper off and attached it to the M bumper.
