Naxos and norma Bumper?!

Difference between Naxos bumper and Normal Mk1 front bumper?
Can Anyone post a picture of the two?
Which one is better looking you think!?

I found that they are selling two parts called bumper support, what are these for, are they important!?

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

the "beauty" in your picture it's an mk1 B just like mine, Rossa Corsa (my car was made in the first week of June 1995)
so you got them right; red bumper is naxos and orange bumper is mk1

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

I don't think first one is a naxon. There were different models of lips for the bumper sold.
This is one of them, but it isn't the one on the naxos.

This is:


Here you have the facelifted bumper of the mk2

Basicly all 3 are the same, but the first one has a lip mounted under the bumper
You can buy them separately.

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

Mine's a 2001 Naxos with a new original front bumper and spoiler fitted last year. Sunnier days
Anyone reckon the lip has a noticeable affect on performance?

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

It will help with drawing in more cold air to the engine bay.

I once had mine blown off driving down the motorway on the way to a pistonheads vmax meet, one of the cars in the convoy was a Lamborghini golardo, he had to swerve to miss the flying spoiler and so i was quite lucky to have not damaged his car. We saw the funny side of it later,

I have now glued my second naxos spoiler with tigerseal and its never come away.

I remember chasing along the Isle of Man TT circuit when a mate three cars in front had his Cinquecento Abarth hatch spoiler break free, it fluttered through the air like a little butterfly right over the top of the Cinq following him. I just had to casually brake, pop open the door and pick up the spoiler, putting it in behind the front seats on mine. Didn't even have to pop the seatbelt off

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

My Naxos spoiler just flew yesterday while flying on the motorway at 185kmh
Braked hard, reversed on the emergency lane, picked it up all bruised up.
It was colored red like the whole car but now I thing I will make it black to save some money on the painting and do it myself.
Also when flew away it broke the lower part of the bumper on witch it slides..

Re: Naxos and norma Bumper?!

Thanks Kiry Appreciated
Already applied your advices (in my country I found something called Poxipol)
I applied some of that and also stuck one hidden bolt and nut on each side and now I feel more confident speeding up
Also to make the spoiler much stiffer I filled it with polyurethane foam (used for sealing doors and window gaps)
After all these painted it mat black. It matches the mat black hardtop
