147 FaceLift, Rear Bumper update
Well you may remember that Filbyboy was going to try a facelift rear bumper in his 147 as the object was to have a stainless exhaust with two outlets and not to have the rubberacross the back.
For those of you who were waiting for news, itís not good.
THEY DONíT FIT and are not interchangeable.
The body and hatch must be a different shape although the bumper lines up perfectly with the rear wings.
You will see from the pics that where the additional exhaust was going to come out, the towing bracket is in the way. This can be altered but the bumper does not line up with the hatch or the rear crossmember.
Both must be rounder and protrude further behind on the facelift cars. Also there is no where to put your hand to lift the hatch.
Anyone want a cheap black bumper?
