This is my guide to fitting a Novitec bumper for the Seicento.

DON'T DO IT!!

F'Kin nightmare, Had to cut off a massive strip of fibreglass to make it fit, Drill holes for the bolts, well at least its on and it looks nice, euro stylee with DTM flaps on the bottom :D:D:D
And i'm the only person in the UK to have one na na na na na :p

This is the bumper below, but its in black

No pics mate ;)
I had to cut a lip off the top approx 1" and cut out a groove in the middle to fit it round a support strut.
Took six hours to do but i'm pleased with it. :D
Just need a MPI shape towing eye cover to finish it off as the SPI are totally different.
Hav'nt fitted my Shark roof spoiler yet, looks a bit err sort of pants

i saw it ages ago on their site and adored it ever since
you not recommend fitting it urself then
hmm damn
i was very tempted by it.
I like a lot of the stuff novitec do. I definately like the front corner splitters and eye brows.

Errr dunno on the pics mate still hav'nt bought a digital camera spent it all on mods :D, but i will be on the ClubCento stand at www.donnyshow.co.uk next weekend, if anyones going your welcome to come and have a look.

If your compitent enough you can fit it yourself but if you want if 100% perfect get a bodyshop to fit it.
To make it fit you have to:
1- Trim a piece of fibreglass off the top
2- Cut out a notch for a support strut
3- Drill four holes for the bolts, Where it mounts onto the wings a right pain in the arse to do as its very difficult to make them line up 100%
4- Take out the front bolt holding in the wings in for clearence
5- Fit the clear indicators provided

Job done, at first i was'nt to sure about it but its growing on me, coz my Sei's on 15's it looks a high, as in the pic above.

Oh and theres now a gap between the bumper and bonnet so theres loads of air rushing into your engine, no need for a length of piping to your induction kit
