Aero Bumper vs GP font bumper
 
Hi folks,
I'm really not sure which bumper to choose ..

If I choose GP front bumper. Will it be bolt on?
Do I need to buy new fog lights in the GP front? or dos the cooper s fog lights fit? Dos the black front lip from cooper s fit on cooper s GP?

What would you choose between those two? :)

I also have a JCW grill on my old Cooper S front bumper. (The black grill) will it fit the GP front bumper?

Thanks for helping folks :)

R53, right? They should be straight swaps between the 2. I personally like the aero, vs the GP. The GP parts don't seem right to me on Most R53s

^^^ I agree. Aero over the GP. GP is awesome for sure but 1. I don't think its worth the money. and 2. I like the more aggressive lines of the Aero bumper on the R53. I think GP rear bumper trim is an awesome choice, but other than that, I don't really care for the GP side skirts, and the bumper is definitely up there price wise. :nuts: But if you're willing to pay the price for the GP bumper, I would be pretty tossed up too. :P

Thanks for input foks :) Much appreciated. Yes , its for a R53. I also think the Aero bumper looks more aggressive , but I also like te GP. If I think price, the Aero is much cheaper.

GP = about 500 without painting.
Aero = About 300 incl tax/vat and shipment from England to Norway.

If I choose Aero , I will also buy orranje duckts :

awesome -- by any chance, do you know if those are available from any US sellers?

I dont know mate :) But they ship international. And Rick at orranje take good care of he's customers.
I ordered the GP wing and GP-Style inserts.
He forgot to send GP - Style inserts and sends them separated when I sent him an email and told about the problem. It took a very long time before they came, and I sent him an email - where I said that I had not gotten those yet (14 days). He sent yet another package, and two days later, I received the first package with GP inserts that he send first. I also to got keep the ones he sent last, without any additional payment. The reason It took so long time , is the Norwegian custom)

When I was going to mount the GP wing , one attached snapped/broke, I sent him a mail, and then he told that he will send me a new part, without any payment or I got 50 discount at my next order.

Is the best service I have ever experienced.

Especially.... When you think about it..... None of the problems were caused by Orrange...

Thats true mate. Real good service. Absolutley recomanded :)

we concluded that it was an injury to this part that broke before I mounted it. But anyway - very nice man and one good company.

Thumbs up :)
