Vorsteiner GTS5 bumper

How many of you guys are actually getting this bumper? Ordered mine already but having some doubt. I have a Silverstone Metallic E92 if that helps.

It's creating a lot of buzz on the streets - we've already got quite a few inquiries.

This bumper comes with a lip, just like the GTS3 bumper. The whole bumper is actually cheaper than the GTS5 front lip by itself.

I've ordered mine already after giving much thought about it The GTS3 and Arkym bumper are very clean but I like that the GTS5 will be limited production.

I'm just curious where would we mount the plate since the tow hook isn't accessible with this bumper. I'm from ny and its required here. I've driven for 6 months with out a plate and manage to acquired about a ticket a week at $60 each that's too much for not driving without a plate in front. I want no hole in this bumper nor do I want to do that double sided tap. Sick bumper can't wait to get mine.

Maybe velcro tape might hold better.
I'm glad they don't give me any trouble here in Texas for it.

Hey Max, a quick question. What if the car equipped with headlight washer, just remove this function? Or cut two holes on the bumper to fit it?

You can delete them to make it cleaner or you would have to cut holes if you really wanted to keep them.

You have the option of completely removing it or you can retrofit the system into the new bumper. These are tasks any body shop with experience can easily perform.
