VN 5.0L Berlina S2 Slushbox
I'm looking for a Group A bumper for my VN (slowly in the process of rebuilding it but am yet to get a digital camera 'cos I'm lazy) and I found this one on ebay...

Group A Bumper

Any opinions? It's just that it seems exorbitantly cheaper than anywhere else and its only $55 postage so I like it a lot.

Is there such a thing as cheap-dodgy-kits vs. really high quality ones?

Is it worth paying the extra $300 some places want for it?

Thanks in advance guys, I know nothing about body kits.

Another question - mines a Berlina and like 3 or 4mm thicker than the Commo Exec apparently - this'll make... absolutely no difference right?

Berlina and Exec is exactly the same man... The 3-4mm difference in width i probably the door trim or something :p

Also the difference between that one and the expensive ones, is the expensive ones are normally Genuine front bars, made from a plastic rather than fibreglass... Poly something or other.

IF the mould is really good, it will look exactly the same :thumbsup:

I take it that would be an intentional joke...

At least I bloody hope it is!

And BTW all the more expensive Group A bars I can find ($500 - $1000) all say they're fibreglass as well.

Wonder how much a 'genuine' plastic style one would cost?

Actually SpoilerFactory is now $415... I was gonna buy from them as well, and was kinda bummed when the price went up, but shipping to where I am would be about $200 (rural Nth Qld.)

That's why the Ebay kit caught my eye.

Is it easy to crack fibreglass? Anyone else wanna explain the ins and outs, cos as I said, I have no clue. :)
