The plastic hardware attached to the rear impact beam is different between US and euro bumpers.

Spoiler Warning Light - I assume this is what it is? The little image of the car with an arrow pointed at the spoiler?

Just noticed that this light doesn't extinguish once the engine has started. Is this normal?

The spoiler light goes out once the car achieves a speed of 4 km/h

thanks

I wonder what the difference is... But anyway I will find out this week when I try to fit an euro bumper in place of a US one. If needed I will either customize the support or get an EU one...

Look at the pics in this thread.
https://rennlist.com/forums/964-1989...mper-face.html

The actual pics are a US beam. See those two fat plastic blocks towards the center, where the US plates goes? Now look at the PET diagram further down the thread. That's the RoW beam.

You can fit a euro center (RS or standard) on a US car, but you gotta chop those big plastic blocks off the US beam. A Dremel makes quick work of it. I did it when I went RS center.

Here's one for you guys...

Does the handbrake release button un-screw? I'd like to change it for an aluminium one.
