    I'm guessing that the brackets on the bumper are different from standard as after fitting all the all the Oris iron work to the car the bumper itself does not go back on:wallbash:. The holes are obstructed.

    Has anyone got any pictures of what they look like or know where I can get them from?

    saloon and coupe bumpers have the same fitment although I think there were different bumper mounts for use with a towbar

    Alot of towbar systems require cuts to be made to the bumper, have you checked that this is or isn't the case?

    I had a 330 sport that needed a cut but the towbar came with a blanking bit. Without telling you I doubt you would know.

    It definitely needs cutting, but the shape of the std bracket on the bumper prevents it being offered up close and one of the holes is now covered up by the new iron work for the hitch, meaning there must be different brackets, more than that i don't know, nor do i have chapter 31 'special equipment' on the cd manual. I can see it taking a long time to track these down:eek:
