Eurostyle's Rieger front bumper installation

I've got it mounted and nearly ready to go, however I have a gap between the wheel lining, and the bumper. With the wheel on, its hardly noticeable. But otherwise, it looks bad. Suggestions?

Also, the bottom seems like it would be flimsy and if I'm driving fast enough that it would bend. What is the best way to solve this?

Thanks.

for some reason, regier kit from fill was little on the thin side as I saw it on other members car. But his regier lip was really great and not flimsy or anything like that. His regier lip can take quite a bit of abuse and it stands fine on me.

I think the problem can be solved by installing the bumper cover on top of the old cover. I could be wrong though. Better to ask Fill.

yeah, I'm searching through my old logs. I think Justin had mentioned that was the way to do it as well.

The replica installs much the same as the original Rieger...and both are just as flexible, so i dont think it will be a problem. For pics of the install you can check the "Ti transformation" thread...Very easy stuff. If you have any conserns just call me or drop by the shop!
