OEM R32 vs R Line

Postby Ermentrude » Tue May 06, 2008 1:40 am

I was looking at the OEM Front Bumper kits and I came across a claim that cars with SMIC's should buy the R-Line kit instead. The site says that due to R32s being NA, their bumpers dont allow airflow to the SMIC, so the R-Line kit should be bought instead. Anyone have any input?

Here's the site that I was looking at for reference, scroll down to the OEM R Bumper, the description says it all.

Thanks for the help guys

well i forgot to mention that this would be on an MK4 1.8T... the OEM Bumper apparently doesnt allow airflow to the stock SMIC on the MK4 1.8t's.

Don't know if that makes a difference? :wiggle:
