    Default bumper bars!

    dunno if theres a tread already asking this but. on e7's is it .. "road legal" to not have the rear bar on?

    and also the front. i understand with the indicators but if you some how mounted them somewhere just on the front of the car would it matter? and would it pass rego?

    i doubt it mate

    they would prolly get you on something to do with the crumple zone when you hit a pedestrian.

    i have been running no front or rear bumpers since September last yr and i haven't been pulled over yet. but i guess I'm just lucky
    you need to have bumper bars on the car to get roadworthy/ pass rego regardless of wif you mount front indicators somewhere or not.
    there not to dear and will save you getting a defect, i got new bumpers but i am just lazy.

    yeah nah ive got bmpers but damn i hate the look of them. and with the flat front they look sexy with frontbar.

    i wonder if you welded a strip of metal across the back to cover the holes. and then just shave it and everything to make it look legit. wonder if they'd notice

    KE70s do not look "sexy" with no bumpers.

    Hitting (even touching) anything with no bumpers will fuck your car.

    "sexy"
