Has anyone installed an s60 r bumper onto a 2001 s60 T-5?<p>The current s60r bumper has colored (monochromatic) trim. Does that come off and can I use the exsisting black trim on my T-5 bumper in place of it?<p>Will my T-5 grill work on the s60 r bumper.<p>I know I will have to get new fog lights though.<p>

Yes, people have installed them...<p>No, your trim won't fit...<p>No, your T-5 grill won't work....<p>Yes, you will have to get fogs...

Re: Installing s60r bumper (dugums)

The Front Lip Spoiler is not from VST, they just made a copy of R Bumper, but include the Fog Light Grill and VST Style front lip spoiler. It can save a lot of money to buy Factory Bumper + Fog Light Grill + VST front lip spolier. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.jpweb.jp/graph/IE013I.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

The pictures from Veilsidez thread (the one that was linked) aren't showing up...<p>There seem to be a lot of R's dropping the R bumper in favour of the Evolve body kit. There should be a few spare ones around. From what i can tell, they don't keep their fogs either. <p>But if you're going to do it, take the R off the grill and replace it with a T5 or 2.5T etc etc.

Re: (GuelphVolvo)

It's funny the things we think about... I have already planned to do a switch to the R bumper... I already have an R grill I'm working on to put the T5 emblem on...<p>Great minds think alike I guess... Unfortunately, my mind is not that great.... Doesn't say alot about you, does it???? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
