European bumpers are hard enough to find for E30s, I've never even seen anyone offer a set for an E21. Usually someone in the military will send a couple over if they can, or somebody finds an imported car buried in weeds somewhere.

You could just tuck the stockers, couldn't you?

There's a front euro bumper on eBay right now. It will need some sanding and a re-paint, but it's probably gonna go cheap.

If I remember correctly, you can tuck the front bumper over 2 inches in ... rear a little less, but it's smaller anyway.

2 inches is A LOT. It would almost get you the euro look for free (with a huge mess with drilling the shocks). If I had a e21 or a big bumper e30, I'd definitely tuck.

Yeah, it looks best that way, but I'm not sure I'd wanna be in it in an accident.

ps. A lot of people with VW Rabbit GTi's take them off too. Hawt.

Hell, the car doesn't even have an airbag or ABS. Accidents are for the weak.
