it takes a little work to get it on. you have to cut down the shifter and wire the o/d. requires the removal of the whole center console.


will have pics tomorrow. but all i can say is the pre-facelift euro bumper looks so damn good installed.

Center console easy to pull off. I just bought the same knob after seeing it on your car. If you can provide a little more detail on the installation, I would appreciate it.

the console is int to hard to take apart. just a hand full screws. to know how much to cut the shifter shaft, just place the new one on and mark where it sit. unfortunately you cant really bolt the new shifter on because the new shifter has screws in a different postion. i just wrapped some electrical tape around the shaft and forced the new one on. its a tad loose, but its still holding on. its kinda hard to describe since it dosent just bolt on. hopefully this helps.

this shows how much need to be trimmed off

a cut off wheel does make this a real easy thing to do

mock-up

almost done

it looks so good

and done. now i just gotta save up for the rieger front lip. this bumper looks so good. it put a smile on my face everytime i look at it. also gotta try and find a good deal on getting the rear finished, then get the whole car repainted

Thanks. I'm planning on the rieger lip also. This bumper is super short. I can see my header plain as day just by taking a few step back
