insurance should cover it... and/or sue the bastard that hit you.

As long as they have good feedback it is worth a try. We have the CSL Bumpers in stock for sedans. However, they are slightly more expensive, $385 Shipped to your door. If you need any help feel free to shoot me a pm.

thats weak, sorry to hear it. ebay is hit or miss, thats just the facts of it. you can try it but for around 200 more(after shipping) you could find one here that would be just as good and probably fit right. its my opinion of course but i cant see the quality being all that good. im weary of ebay bodykits because they are made cheap, so how do you think they will look


side note - i understand that there are bargains and also good deals on good parts on ebay, this is my 0.02

Did you file a police report? Check for cameras?

Really sorry to hear about that. And not to give you a hard time or anything, but full coverage is a must.

Anyways, the ebays bumpers are often hit or miss. It might seem like a great deal, and it might. But more than not you get what you pay for. And pics of the damage?

yea i know full coverage is a must but i really cant afford it especially since im only 19...insurance would be insane. and sorry no pictures... it hurts just to look at it, cant believe someone could do something like that and drive away....to give u an idea starting from my right fog light there is not paint left on my bumper...it is hanging and cracked slightly...right cornering light is broken....and right side fenders has like 5 huge parallel gashes going into the paint...

here are the two different ones:

the third, being discussed, is not on our site, but we've sold it before and will sell it again if there is enough demand for it.
