Euro Front Bumper Install

UPDATE 9/11/2011: Thanks man. Ya my problem right now is right under the headlights. There is a small gap but I cant seem to get it worked out. I tried everything. It fits great everywhere else. Not sure what to do :/? Are there clips or something that need to be attached? If anyone knows I would greatly appreciate it. I know lots of people have done bumper installs so any guidance would be awesome. Thanks!


Hi guys,

I have had my actual euro front bumper installed for a while now and have had a few fitment issues from the beginning. Nothing really bad, but I have some time this weekend so I was thinking of messing around with it. It seems like everything is bolted on tight and in the right area. problem is there seems near the air ducts there is a little more gap like the bumper is pushed out a bit. And that under the headlights there is a small gap as well. Anyone know of any adjustments that I cant think of? Again everything bolted on to OEM so figured it would fit easily.

Thanks for your help. I can try and get a few pics too, but wont be until later.

Post pics please. How much was your Euro bumper? The painted reflectors really bother me for some reason. If I can get a Euro bumper and install myself in one week for a decent price I would consider it.

Sometimes between the hood and bumper there's a space everyone has trouble adjusting.

Who installed it?

I'm going to install my OEM Euro bumper next week (had IND custom mold the factory carbon splitters to the bumper prior to painting). I'll tell you how things go and what the fitment looks after it's been installed.

Also, have a few other painted parts to install...can't wait to see the car after everything's installed.

My OEM Euro bumper was a perfect fit. It was a little difficult initially to get it to go under the headlights (toward center of car) but then it just "popped" into place.

I wish I could help you solve your fitment issues but mine didn't require any mechanical "persuasion". Sorry...
