Phase 1 rear bumper...

  Ph1 Red Clio 172
Hello every one,

I have got a flame red 172 2000, I am wanting to get a 182 double exhaust bumper, could i just be neat and cut some holes or better to get a new bumper completely ?

  Maybe a 172 Cup..
Cutting 2x holes in a PHS 1 bumper wouldn't cut it for me mate. Wouldn't look right due to factory shape, ie with little bit missing. Better to do on a PHS 2 bumper, or leave as Papa intended FTW;)
I put a K-Tec 182 look exhaust on my Phase 1. Just bought a secondhand 182 bumper and stuck it on.

I assumed you wanted the exhaust cut outs as you wanted to fit a replica 182 exhaust or something?

If this isn't the case, then find yourself a ph2 172 in flame red and it'll pretty much bolt straight on barr the two holes I mentioned, and the colour should match nicely. :)

I am SO confused.

So you've got a ph1 172 with a ph2 172 rear bumper???

If so, why would you want a ph2 182 bumper? As that is EXACTLY the same as the ph2 172 bumper but with two cut outs for the exhaust?

yer, and i want the back of my car to look like a proper 182 with 2 exhausts lol

So why did you ask this?

and the exhaust cut outs ?

Basically, what you need to do is:

Get a 182 rear bumper.

Respray it the colour of your car

Buy a 182 look exhaust from someone like KTEC, as a standard one won't work (you have a spare wheel well and the 182 doesnt). - The exhaust you want is just a twin pipe with some clever pipe work to avoid the spare wheel.
