Urgent advide needed regarding GTA style bumper on 156
My car has been in the bodyshop for the last few days as I'm having the Helvetia 156 GTA style front bumper fitted.
My fitter has told me that due to the new location of the (left hand) foglight (further out towards the edge of the bumper), that this is now clashing with the Airbox.
He has told me that he has fitted a different airbox which apppears to fit (?!!), and it seems to be working.
My questions are:
1. Does the GTA have a slightly different airbox/fitting for airbox than a standard 156, and can I retro fit this to my standard car.
2. If he has fitted a different airbox, which appears to work, is this relatively safe, and are there any tell tale signs I need to watch out for when driving the car.
BTW - I've not inspected or collected the car myself yet, so can't comment on exactly what the fitter has done.
Your help would be appreciated.
