Euro bumper for a B3

Postby DE80q » Sun Apr 16, 2017 5:27 pm

I'm looking to purchase a euro bumper for my 80q. With the looking around that I have done, it seems most people go with a S2 or V6 coupe bumper to be able to fit an intercooler behind. Are these really my only options? I've seen pics of the B3 sedan euro bumpers, and they all look to be pretty tight.

And advise would be great. Thanks

I'm not so concerned with the fender flair lining up, I can modify that, blasphemous I know... If there is a euro B3 bumper that has room behind it for an intercooler, I'd love to hear about it.

s2/v6 bumper will cost way more then a b3, and you can put a big intercooler under the stock bumper

How much does it bother you to cut the b3 bumper?

I have a fairly large Intercooler behind my US spec B3 bumper. I have picked up a pair of the B3 H1/H4 headlights, so I want to put them with a matching euro bumper that has the turn signals.

Honestly, it would depend on the condition of the bumper. I might feel bad hacking up a pristine example.
