    Assuming it still works (it's blocked at work) should all be on this link from the first post

    Personally, I wouldn't bother with the extra strips of wheel-arch lining (as previously discussed) but everything else should be listed.

    I don't believe so - I have a LCR bumper on my Toledo and the existing wheel arches appear to fit fine

    (I think it's for the MY03 bumper, as shown in the diagram on Pg1, where it flares out at the bottom)


    Fitting guides (No. 3 on the same diagram) are required, unless you already have the MY03 bumper

    if my leon needed them and i didnt get them (the arch extensions that is) then would the bumper still fit but there would just be a little gap on the corner of the corner on the current arch.

    Basically, yes - it's just a bit of black plastic trim AFAIK that fills the gap where the MY03 bumper steps out at the bottom to match the profile of the sideskirts

    They extend the arch liners downwards by about 25mm.

    "SN0154391 3D55 NUT £0.22 X 20
    S1M6807199 N/STOCK BOLT £0.24 X 20

    Very usefull guide there :)

    I intend to put atleast half of all that to use this Week so thanks it'll be a great help.

    Can't help but notice all the mastic/tiger seal you've used to stop the leaky door problem aswell?
    Did this work ok as that's top of my priorities at the moment and just ordered 2 tubes of tiger seal..

    Hi everyone, i'am wanting to do my own conversion on my Cupra 20v Turbo Sport. I have looked at the link and the pics are gone (I think i should be ok with the description). Just wanted to know how tall the cupra R front and rear bumpers are on there own and will it fit my car.

    Removed the rear bumper on my LCR about a month ago to locate a waterleak in my boot.
    Turns out I didn´t have to after all to sort the leak.

    However sorted the leak and tried to fit the bumper back correct about 10 times.

    Thing that’s pissing me off is that on the left side the bumper didn´t come all way forward.
    (Stops 4-5mm early)
    Which means that it doesn´t add up correct around the “wheelhouse”
    As I said can´t understand how to do it any other way (right side is fine)
    Don´t think others think about it when they look at the car but it really bothers me 

    Anyone else had problems to fit them perfect?

    Best regards

    Love the colour!!! Wait, is the same as mine :rofl:.

    Where did you get the Cupra R front and rear bumpers from? Did they come in this colour or you had to paint them yourself?
