Has anyone replaced their front bumper? Someone gashed up mine on the street and was wondering how much it could be to get replaced. There's no strucutral damage but it's a nasty gash from the center to the left. any help? thanks.
IIRC I've seen primed bumper covers (i.e. just the plastic part you see) for as little as $180 and for as much as $350. The painting would probably run $100-150. Installation you could do yourself otherwise it shouldn't cost much.
It bolted to the Turbo fine. Interesting that is is 30% smaller diameter then my last 2. Must be more effecient since the '02's had 170hp I think.
The problem was it did not come with the nuts welded on the downpipe flange end. So I found some nuts....was able to drop my bolts from the top (only cause I got skinny arms...and the smaller cat diameter) and then worked on getting the nuts on from the bottom. 1 was easy, 1 was tough, 1 was impossible!!!! Finally got it after 15 tries. Again....arms bigger then mine....no way.
So much easier when the nuts are welded on the Cat end. Easy to run a bolt up there on an extension. But a nut? Finger tips got a work out!
But it's real sweet now...went to a muffler shop....put in a 20" Glasspack, straighted out the pipe going into the muffler (no more suitcase), then chipped it. Wow! New car!!! I'm all grins!
