Going to get Stoffler rear diffuser fitted next week and then I'll have to get a twin exhaust made up. Will post up pics when all finished. ;)

I hate the fact that your car is always beautifully clean! Despite half of the skin panels missing!

Is it still ok to drive it around without the bumper etc?

Hi Rocky.... As you have removed the rear plastic bumper assy, I wondered how adjustable the fit is to the rear metal work in the area of the wheel arch, the plastic on my mk7 protrudes a little around this area and wondered if it was adjustable at all or is it just clipped in and not adjustable? Cheers Bryfly

I didn't actually physically take the bumper off, was just lending a helping hand. The bumper round the wing / arch area is clipped in and I'm pretty sure it would be a fixed fit, not adjustable. I'll double check for you today. ;)

Yes I know what you mean, the roads outwith the area have been terrible. :angry: Find yourself constantly looking out for potholes when driving.

My road's just got lots of humps ..................... speedbumps. <_< :rolleyes:

When you say the plastic protrudes a little in this area, do you mean the small triangle of grey plastic in each rear arch? If you do, it's meant to be like that. If not, you should be able to get Ford to adjust things and make the panel fit-up right.

Hi coysht........no it is not the triangular bit of plastic it is the rear bumper where the bumper meets the metal work, just thought i would see if it is adjustable as rather do it myself than let a dealer loose on it. Also thanks to rocky for the reply

You're taking a big risk. Imagine if someone rear ended you, you may get a shock from your insurance company.

Well that's the car away and off the road for the next week to get the Stoffler rear diffuser fitted and the washer jets colour coded white. Can't wait to get the car back to see what it'll look like. :)
