      How much do you drive?

      I am sure some people will import the bits though.

      That bumper might look good and provide an OEM+ option for those wanting to go more aggressive. :beer:

      I don't get this point.

      That's like saying the M3 its too expensive for a 3 series because a base 320i here in the US is $33k and an M3 starts at $62k.

      The Golf R is one of a handful of cars...

      You say this but no one is not buying the GTI because of this.

      I don't see inventory rotting and riots happening.

      You will find that most of these from different ebay sellers are the same bumper.

      Companies go to Alibaba and other sites and buy the same bumper in bulk then mark them up to sell. :thumbup:

      ^ This.

      Extended terms for financing of cars (5+) and homes (30+) and consumer unsecured debt has lessened the sting of what is really happening.

      I see clips on the lower grill and the fog grills from the backside.

      It probably ships all installed to the bumper cover. Mine came that way... all of the lower grills were installed. Then you...

      I don't want to come off as an a$$ but the first three questions are covered by your factory manual.
