    I've just seen this on the front of a Hippo on fb market, I've tried googling it but don't even know what to call it.
    1. It looks as much use as indicators on a bmw.
    2. I really want one now.

    I had one on my SE. They come in 2 colours, black ABS, or grey painted ABS. They're actually pretty strong, much stronger than the bumper behind them.
    I used mine as a shroud for my LED light bar.

    I got mine for £72 on a weekend offer deal at Rimmer's, but they are normally over twice that much.
    Here's the grey one.
    Screenshot_20220105-220435_Gallery.jpg I'm sorry, I can't find the part numbers now, but they're called "front protection something" IIRC.


    I'm currently keeping an eye out for another, but for my FL2 this time, as I like the look of them myself, and the small amount of added protection on a vulnerable part of the bumper. Unfortunately the FL2 one is over £300, so I'm waiting for another bargain on that too.

    Mine has one, as fitted as option by previous owner when car was purchased.
    Unfortunately no part number is shown on original invoice but price was.
    See photo.

    Yes. You drill holes in the bumper (quite large holes actually) and they screw into threaded inserts fitted in the holes.
