Euro Bumpers?

Hi Folks,

Currently have an ETA with DB bumpers... is a Euro bumper conversion a straight swap or as with the plastic bumper conversion, requires some modifications?

How difficult is it to source Euro bumpers in Canada?

Any advice or help, much appreciated!

Installing them is quite simple. No fabrication - on the rear you'll just have to drill 2 holes - nothing really major. The front valence will show some gaps on the front corners unless you switch to a euro valence or add a front spoiler.

What type of valence are you referring too here? Early DB style or the later plastic bumper style valence?

Anyone have any pics of a euro bumper with later style valence?

The later syle valence won't look normal with euro bumpers.
The diving board valence will look much better but it'll show gaps on the front corners.
