Interested to see your bumper after the fix cause I had the front plate holder on my car also, but I bought a new bumper.

I would not wait... Not worth it if you want to mod the car.

I was tempted to get the Euro bumper -- but figured I would fix the factory bumper up.

I'm hoping for a 99% repair when done; once paint is cured, the 3M will go on the bumper .. nobody will ever know.

Alpine white is an easy color to work with; I did a couple of repairs on my last car and it looked 100%. If it was metallic paint, I'd probably get it done at the body shop since that is a bitch to work with.

Checked my ECU software version on Friday, it was 190E which was so old and out dated. Then upgraded to the latest 240E, the difference is HUGE. Anyone out there looking for power upgrade, I think upgrading to 240E is the best, easiest, and most efficient way.

In the spring, I'm going to have mine flashed to 240E as well, then right after that flash, a new AA s'c'r tune based on the 240E.

Mid March and we still have snow. I think realistically our first meeting will be in April.

I looked at the euro bumper but 3k for an unpainted bumper was not worth it for me.

Who were you representing? How much $ does ECUP charge for the 240E, even to check if the car has it? I'm not sure if I do.

The Vanquish was totally pimp love that car... I am going to sell my house and live in that car... which works cause that car will break down every week and not move so it is perfect to live in.

Don't know where you're getting 3k from.

When I asked a number of sponsors last year that is what they said... For that price I would have had one on my car right now

The Vanquish is really nice but man is that car huge! I cant say im the biggest fan of the 12C, the styling is a little on the conservative side for my tastes.

I think im turning into a P-car fanboy right now... I really liked that 991 C4S with the aerokit cup kit and I even like the 981 Boxster.
