I don't have one but what you're looking for is an "Airflow kit", saloon version.

or are you looking for a Carlsson kit?
(I haven't got one of those either!)

The kit fitted to the Carlsson models is actually the hatchback version of the "Airflow" kit. It wouldn't fit the convertible as the rear bumper is different from the hatchback.
The saloon airflow kit is fairly uncommon.

I'm afraid I can't picture what a big-bumper kit might be if not the Carlsson/Airflow type.

If it's not the Carlsson / airflow one, then I'd guess he means the standard 1987 onwards one

Maybe. I never thought of that as "big".

Sorry lads. I just mean the plastic kit like on that black K plate car.
My car just has the 3" side trim and I fancied it looking like the black car. Think maybe front and rear bumper is same it's just the side panels and the rear bumper extensions.

Yes, just different bumper extensions front and back.

Note that the rear extensions are specific to the convertible.
