(((((((((((((((((UPDATE!)))))))))))))))))))) Read down.
So I found this guy local. It needs some minor TLC which will be done this weekend. This is how it looks as it sits in my paint booth.




Question? Does anyone know where to get the fogs that fit?

And heres a pic of the car today.

And one more.


Ok, so I can't get the bumper painted until next tuesday so I will be beginning a new project. Actually 2. One will be a lip for the new bumper and the other will be a surprise.

If you can see the blue marks then you know where the cracks are. All work is very minor. I hope to have it on by next week.

SWEEEEETT!!!
wait what kind of bumper is that?!?!?!
the stock rs bumpers did not come with vents on the side and the Rieger does not have that big of fog light holes. the vents and lip looks like rieger but the fog lights and middle moldings look like r/s collection.
im confused, it looks like a mix of both, what is it?

well I saw your car pics. And I can say it looks exaxlty like yours besides the side marker being more on the corners deleting the standard side marker. The turn signals are visible from the front and sides. It also has the center mold for a euro plate.I am clueless to what brand it is since the guy I bought it from didn't know. If someone could tell me that would be great.

There's a guy on the FFOC UK site selling one like that right now. The bumper is a standard collection front that he molded the RS side vents into. He even molded hella projector marker lights into it. I've never seen a manufactured piece like that, so I'm guessing it's custom. For $60, that's a nice find!



...Oh, and BTW, I hate you. [joke]

That is definately the bumper. If not, than as close as you can get.

I can not believe how lucky I got finding this bumper. I recentely gave up on them since I couldn't see spending a lot on one. But this was just a pure luck moment. I will be fixing it up this weekend and have some pics.

And just to let everyone know, you really need to open up your searching for parts. I find a lot of stuff cheap. Mostly in Craiglist. I just do a broad searc of what I want and type craigslist behind it. You would be surprised what you find. I got my Hella headlights for $140 never used.

Its a knockoff of the RS collection of course with a few different touches as they can not remanufacture something thats exact with any legal issues. Foglight holes are smaller (looks like 2.5-3" holes) side vents and that lip on the bottom. I will say it is a hot bumper. And one hell of a deal. I know when I found my RS collection I was suprised I got it for 200 shipped from Louisiana from a member on here. Almost same condition as yours.... Good Job bro. Paint the side vents black. that would be hot.
