    Default 205 bumpers

    Hi all,

    I'm in the process of bringing my 205 Gti back to life and I'm looking at getting some new bumpers for the thing.
    I was wondering if anyone has any leads for a local source? Or if anyone could point me in the direction of a trustworthy international option?
    Ive seen a U.K. Seller on eBay called Neat Car Parts, has anyone used them??

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    andy

    Are the bumpers damaged or just faded? You may be better getting any minor damage repaired and dying them black again with Plasticare or similar rather than fit repro bumpers that are made of lighter material than the originals.

    If you do need to replace, Neat is a large and reputable supplier.

    Thanks for the response.
    Unfortunately both front and rear have damage. I wouldn't think they could be repaired, but I'll look into it.
    All the trim is fade quite badly. I might have to try a dye Andy see how it comes up.
    Thanks

    If its a series 1 to 1.5 they should be anthracite grey and 2 onwards are black.
    Try wurth's bumper dye.
