to see if it looks like much bumper trimming would be required to fit the R bumper on a non-R? The mounts are all rusting off my stock exhaust, and I have an R exhaust I could swap on (after JRL mod and donation to ACS, of course <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> ), assuming I don't need to do too much cutting (I could do a little trimming of the plastic, but I just don't trust myself to be too invasive).

OK, trimming definitely required. Is the lower half of the bumper cover from an R available separately, or is the whole thing so different from a base V70 that I'd have to go whole hog to step up to the R bumper? (Just wondering in case the trimming doesn't work out as well as hoped.)

Re: (-Pascal)

Thanks, but the rear bumper is what I'm on about (unless you just linked the wrong image by accident).

If you are talking about the bodykit bumper on an 04, it can be attached to a regular bumper.<br>That is how it came from the factory.<br>For 05, they came out w/ a new one piece rear bumper for the bodykit.

Gonna save some cash and let it ride. Didn't come out too badly, though it is a little off-center to the left (since will be a more complicated Dremel operation, I'm going to leave it).<p><IMG SRC="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w89/vtt5/P1010249.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>[Sorry about the picture quality]<br><IMG SRC="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w89/vtt5/P1010250.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w89/vtt5/P1010251.jpg" BORDER="0">

Why not spend a couple dollars and get a exhaust shop to put a little longer rear hanger on so it will sit a little lower?
