As far as fitment with the vorsteiner bumpers there are a couple of things to look out for. The area around the headlights needs to be trimmed, the lower grille area needs to be cut down until the grille fits correctly and if you get a GTS3 with the tow hook cover the cover doesn't click into the fiberglass correctly, doesn't sit centered or flush in the hole and also is not in the correct place on the bumper so I recommend just shaving it off like the GTS5. Also, you are going to be spending more (about 3x at a high end shop) in paint and body work than an OEM part if you want it done right since it needs a lot more prep (guide coat and block sanding) to get the surface flat and remove all pinholes, etc.
This is VERY true. Do not let just any body shop paint/install the GTS5, it takes a lot of skill and experience with aftermarket bodywork to do this correctly. Nate over at C&C Collision is honestly the best at these bumpers; he does the majority of vorsteiner's wide body builds.
