I think the GTA look-alike doesn't look quite right on a "normal" 147 without the wider wheelarches and lower stance etc. of the GTA....

well, as said, not the first one, so that leaves the second if you want something else

DBS, the GTA bumper looks weird and squashed.

I prefer the GTA bumper personally, I think the DBS one could do with being deeper, although you are restricted in height of the bumper if you want it to fit the original exhaust.

The GTA one if you also get the front bump, skirts and ensure the wheels and ride height looks good
