    I have created a page on my personal website purely for the removal of the mk1 Cupra front and rear bumpers, and the fitting of Cupra R bumpers
    There are plenty of detailed pictures and a parts lists for the bits necessary for fitting the new bumpers

    It also contains the steps for fitting a Forge Front Mounted Intercooler :clap:

    Hope this helps, please leave comments at the bottom of the page, or if you have a query :D

    The front bolts are under those silver caps at the corner of the bumper ... the rest should be the same

    Makes a hell of a difference from Cupra to Cupra R doesn't it, bigger prescence and nicer to look at, also easier to clean lol
    I'm just waiting on my colour coded rubbing strips on the doors and the side skirts and it will pretty much look like one on the outside.
    Having a Cupra R looky likey wasn't my aim, i just didn't want silly fibreglass kits on this car, unlike my previous, and the Cupra R bumpers are the best looking by far i reckon

    Standard :cry:

    Kitted, lowered and alloy'd up :clap:

    Does anyone know the part number for the caps on the slightly older Cupra bumper. The ones that are on the outer bumper skin that cover the bolts.

    Thanks in advance.
