Hi People...
First of all I am new to this site and to Leon ownership!
I have recently purchased a 2005 MkI TDI 130 Leon... and i am after getting a Cupra R front bumper on there. Does anyone know how to source the bumper and all grilles and fitments needed?
Hoping to get something sorted out asap as i have week off work!
Hope to hear from you

Many Thanks

Simon

Well they dont come up second hand very often and when they do they get snapped up pretty quick.
The other options are to phone round a few breakers but I think you may struggle there as well.
That leaves a new one from the dealers which with all the grilles etc is gonna cost you £600ish, Oh and painting as well.

well...

well in the end i gave up on that... spoke to seat who said they could get the parts for me... £480. then plus fitting painting and labour! so you two were very correct with you estimates.... so that idea has gone out window for now.
new alloys tomorrow (Inovit DTM 18")
and a new re-map. 190bhp....
money better spent there i think....
one day ill deal with the bumper tho..

Are they a good fit?
Fibre glass race panel's aren't usually the best i thought (although happy to be proved wrong).
Cheaper than a dealer one though.

It's looks ok. It was list dumped in place and buts of wood holding it up lol. But then it needs the edges cutting and lining up. Then going to use ruvnuts in to the bottom of the wings or come sort of clips. Then going to make my own crash bar across the front then fix to that as well.

I was looking for Cupra R bumper too and google a lot between OEM ones made of ABS Plastic and the FiberGlass ones. What have I found? Fiber is much more cheaper but it doesn't have any holes or mounting edges already aligned to fit - you must do everything to fix the bumper to the car - and be careful as some don't even have the fog light support points. Another thing is the low distance to the ground, the Leon is a low ride and the front bupper (especially with the front lip) became a target to the road bumps and sidewalks. Fiberglass isn't that flexible and a small touch will break it especially on the wheel arch. OEM ones are stronger and more flexible but the price tag even on second hand is stupid high. I end up going to OEM second hand and it's perfect all these years.
