Where can I get a front bumper from?

Post by djntrap » 22 Mar 2012 10:52 am

Hi guys I'm looking for a bumper for my 340 and have been for a while but it seems to be a bit of a grey area. I have the crap standard half-bumper at the moment but my valance it non existent (guessing the last owner found some rust and decided to chop it all off)
So unfortunately I can't go down the mk1golf splitter route as there is nothing to attach it to.
I've seen a few guys on here with stock looking bumpers but that are bigger and extend downwards, covering the valance.
What are they and are they available? I'm going to be chopping up an old bumper off a friends AE86 Corolla soon to see if it will fit too. Also heard someone mention mk3 golf cabby bumpers fit?
If someone could shed some light maybe my car can have a face again!!

Bigger bumpers? are you referring to the early and late style bumper types:

Early, Mk2:

Later, Mk3

Or do you mean the body kit front splitter, that looks like this:

You havent got the black 5 door megane'd 340 have you? I remember seeing pictures of it and the valence had been cut off :?

To get that front splitter you need to find a 360 bodykit, which are quite rare, i believe J340GLT may still have a spare splitter if your lucky :)

Mine is 5 door and black but I do believe it's the Clio Williams setup I have (still an f7r)
And yes, it's been hacked up to buggery! I'm watching a nice scooby splitter on the bay at the moment and if I win it I will simply cut it in half, chop some out To make it fit then plasticweld it back together and attach it via zipties and self tappers :)

Hi djntrap.
Cann't find any pics of the car however it was in smoke silver
and the same shape as the one in picture two.
People are always breaking them so you should not have to much of a
problem getting one. Good luck.
Cheers Mark.
