Managed to snag myself an MkV .:R32 front bumper with grille from a fellow enthusiast on the forums (really the only reason I’m on them). The bumper and grille itself will need some minor TLC but that’s not an issue for me. Though I think the grille will be a bit more of a delicate process that I’m considering someone else do. The grilles new from the dealer run easily over $700, while the bumpers fetch somewhere around $400-500. Knowing that I was going to have to put some time into the bumper if I was able to find one used, was a given but I was fortunate enough to find one in good condition and that already had the side-markers molded off.
A little birthday present to me.
A very rough idea for its future home
Grille originally had license plate mounts but were filled by previous owner.
