Hopefully, I've also looked all over for the rear crash bar that the plastic bumper attaches to and I've had no joy, I don't suppose you have any ideas

You may need to find a second hand bumper and get the metal bar from that, I think but not 100% sure the front bumper is the same size as the rear so you can search both.

It may be quicker to get a response from anyone selling parts on the Scirocco register Facebook page as it can be quite on this website, there is a people selling stuff on here but it can take a day or two to get a reply..

Not much about I've seen one but that 160 and its rusty, I might have to put it back on the car and keep looking hard. I'm sure the front is different but i will have to check.
Thank you

I do not sell the rear arches anymore.

Talk to Chris Salaj, he has had them made and that is where I got them from.
