      It uses the normal square fogs/indicators, not the rounded porsche rs2 ones.

          I can't see why it would not acommodate the intercooler, as this should be very close to the original - dimensionally. Maybe, you know someone that has had a bad experience fitting one oof these copies Greg?
          RS2 bumper does not look quite right without the Porsche indicators in my view Pat.

            Although these bumpers look similar to the rs2 dimensionally, its the depth that can be a problem when fitting. In a side on siluette of the car the copy ones using the square fogs dont stick out as much in front of the bonnet grill as the OEM rs2/s2 bumpers. In my experience these bumpers JUST fit over a s2 intercooler, but you may struggle with rs2 or larger. And generally you need to make custom mounts or you need an audi 80/non s2 coupe bumper to bond the skin over the top.

              Actually that particular one has mounting features on the back so all you would need is some angle brackets to fit. And its ABS which is far better than fibreglass.

                The bumper is not as wide/deep as the S2 OR RS2 bumper...........same as putting a standard B3 bumper off a coupe onto an S2 or RS2..not enough space for intercooler

                cheers

                  Main reason for interest in it was because of the ABS plastic it's made of. I will however be fitting the larger wagner intercooler. Anyone know where to get an RS2 bumper that fits, or has one for sale?

                    Reiger front bumper

                    I have just bought a reiger rs front bumper made from ABS plastic, it the closest thing to the rs2 bumper and uses the porsche idicators and fog lights which are very pricey last time i checked the fogs from audi were coming in at £125 + vat! Also you can by a mounting kit but have a look at Jonas R post he has shown how to mount this bumper. Best of Luck

                      how did you get on with intercooler clearance on the reiger? I know years ago when I look at the ebay fibreglass jobies there wasnt enought clearance for intercooler

                        I have had to remove some of the plastic where the intercooler sits, other than that it fits really well and is good quality. I will post some pictures once completed.

                          I've just pulled my first Carbon/Kevlar RS2 bumper out of it's mould and whilst it is not perfect - it has potential....and it weighs absolutely nothing!

                            Is that the 80 B4 bumper they advertise on the blue and white convertible in the catalogue? Have you mounted it over an S2 or RS2 or Wagner IC?

                              Is there a decent quality ABS RS2 style bumper available that takes the RS2 fogs and indies? Otherwise I might have to go for one of these..
