Yes, as an RS2 is basically juist an 80 Avant, the bumper's a straight swap-
but beware: euro bumpers on the 80/90 are nothing like the US items for
crash protection. 
They're basically just a plastic shell to which bits of steel are bolted
to hold the bumper to the car. 
A small impact is enough for serious damage- BTDT. You must remove all
the 5mph stuff to fit a euro bumper.

Other interesting mods: twin round headlights, RS2 projector Xenon
headlights (these require transplanting the entire height adjustment
stuff from the relevant car- major $$$$/hassle. Better choice: newer
Cabriolet/S2/Coupe projector (DE) headlights. Better bang for the buck,
excellent light and cheaper to replace in case of an accident.

PS If you're into a German-speaking dash in your B3 80/90 (might also
work for other models) move the switch on the bottom righthand side of
the back of your instrument cluster to 'EG' instead of 'US'. This might
mess up your computer (miles-km), so test it first. The 'brake light'
warning goes to 'bremslicht' and I think there are other differences.
I'll look into it later (I want my dash to speak English instead of
German, and my car doesn't have the trip computer anyway).
