As far as I know that's not a standard UK spec bumper for a BG.

Maybe Patrick in OZ can help?!

... and I was going to post it's not a standard spec bumper in Oz!!! :shock: :lol:

Note the photo shows:

- a LHD car (Oz is RHD).
- Oz didn't get the wind deflector on the wiper arm (at least not that big) that I can remember. Nor the skirts. Nor the lip spoiler. Actually I'm not even sure about that car colour being in Oz (I do remember a silver-grey metallic)
- Assuming the no. plate hasn't been tampered with or is 'display only', that no. plate size/shape wasn't available in Oz until the 2000's (to match the Euro cars). In fact it's a very 'Euro' looking plate.
- the background (forest appears temperate deciduous) doesn't look Australian (although not impossible)
- Yellow fog lamps are illegal in Oz (and have been since at least the 70's I think)
- No Oz model had "sport" in the front nose (it said Mazda if I remember rightly in the old lettering) and we didn't have that bar-gap between the indicators anyway.

Hi, this is a long discontinued ATH bumper.
Your best bet of finding one would be looking in germany, austria or the netherlands - but good luck with that. They were rare even 10 years ago.
I'll hit my contacts and see if i can dig something up, if you like.

Thanks for all the help guys!

HMT if you can that would be fantastic, would love to be my hands on it. Otherwise I’ll gladly look any similar bumpers that aren’t too OTT!
