214 Body Coloured bumpers????

If any one can tell me what models have body coloured bumpers??? I know the GTI's have but some GSI's have too possibley SLI's ??? was this an optional extra or are there just the odd few??

Also if i bought a 214 with plain grey plastic would i be able to get the grey bit at the bottom of the doors+the bumpers sprayed??

Cheers 4 any feed back .... Jay (newbie)

the later 214SEi's come with body coloured bumpers. The bottom half of the doors can be sprayed the body colour if need be and even the trim around the car

heh, looking at the bottem half of my 214SLi, with the doors open, I can see my carribbian blue on the inside

what where Rover thinking spraying nasty tempest gray over the lovely Carribbian Blue!!!!!!

I get a little jelous of my perents 414SLi in nightfire red, where the bottem is also red.

I have noticed localy that anyone with a 95N plate 200 its single tone, with body coloured bumper.

Ive got a git/220 gsi rear spoiler (two piece), i cant afford to get it sprayed/put on though, you could have it for 25 quid, a good bodyshop could do it for you. It was black, but the person I bought it off primed it (badly) The fixing bolts have also been sawed off, but my local bodyshop said it wouldnt be a problm, i live in the midlands. They are 250 quid from Rover (not sprayed)

cheers

You could always get some coupe bumpers as they fit perfectly! Does your car have the grille? If so i think that u can remove it to achieve the required look. If you have a grille why not mesh it? It looks really good IMHO.

yeah...that ain't a bad idea Don, but the grille has mounting holes drilled in the bonnet...

Meshing the grille is the way to go I reckon

I haven't got any pics of my actual spoiler, but it is the one like the grey 214sei located in this thread and also in the for sale section under 220 gti. I ll warn you know it will cost over 100 quid to get sprayed and fitted ( I didn't know that when I bought it) In answer to your question bout the body coloured bumpers, on the 400 they where standard from 1994, however in the 200 they became std on late 94 models, mine is a early 1994 with grey bumpers. The pic of the car you sent me used to be on this site, it has a single wiper conversion, if you become a member of www.rovertorque.co.uk it is about 100 pounds, it also has a turbo bonnet with the power bulge, std later model bumpers with a renault laguna front splitter, hope this has been of some help.

Oh yea, there is a motobulid 1 tooth grille in the fro sale section as well, the bloke thats selling it is trustworthy, i just bought a gti front splitter from him. If you have the model with the chrome grille then just mesh it, its easy and looks soo good!

I cant really say I know what spoiler you mean, was it aftermarket? There was a much smaller lip spoiler but that looked very stuck on, hope your modding goes well!
