Oh, things went bad on this one.....LOVE that colour. I'm curious - what was the mounting of the bar onto the bumper like? I had one for my old V50, and it was wobbly because it didn't have a way to mount to anything but the existing/flimsy factory plate rack holes. I put expander bolts in to make it more stable but even then it was only going into the factory foam back piece.
I tried bumper cover only, definitely bounced.
I later added bolts all the way through the crash bar. Better, but still not the most solid since there's that foam that you can't truly tighten against.
