I had the light wieght bumpers beams on my RS. The beam was damaged and replaced twice with this mod. Once time in a parrallel parking situation I came back to find it was damaged from someone getting in or out of the spot. Another time I bumped and SUV at maybe 4 mph and alot of damage was caused to my car since my bumper had no strenght. The AC condensor was damaged, the front end frame around the radiator, a head light was cracked and the hood was buckled. I truely believe that a normal beam would have prevented all or most of the damage. Just something to be aware of.
