Bravo hgt abarth bumper

Hi Folks

I bought what I think was a Zender hgt abarth front bumper. I stumbled across a couple of threads on the net and apparently the HGT bumper is a different size to the s/sx/hlx abarth bumper. My question is this: I only have a couple of numbers off the bottom of the bumper but nothing to cross reference it to. Would any1 know given the numbers, if my bumper is for the HGT or smaller models. I need to know cause I was going to have it sprayed and fitted.


Its a Zender bumper Numbers are a follows
KBA37 823
5909 043

Thanks for any help in advance

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

If you want to be certain, there is only one way. And that is mounting/fitting it temporarily.

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

Yeah it would be the best way. Or if i can locate some part numbers to cross reference it. Just a bit of a pain to remove the old bumper and once its off it'll be a pain to get the old on back on as its damaged on the passenger corner

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

looks like the hgt one is laughing prefer the look of it, less of the genuine ones about than the other bumper.

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

i think they do both for the HGT. I like the other bumper but the one i have is the same as this. And this is the HGT as well.

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

then its proably not gonna fit right

i remember what a pain it was fitting it to a normal bravo, thats why in the end i fitted a Marea HLX bumper instead

marea bumper looks 100000000000 time better

Re: Bravo hgt abarth bumper

If it's made for the HGT it should fit fine, if its made for the other models then I'll sell it.
