Someone crashed into my front bumper and fender ;-(

A girl in a 07 Mustang smashed up my bumper and passenger side fender. Oh well, time for insurance to get me a Euro bumper!

Holy Crap! I'm so sorry to see that. You should pick up the Euro one from
Simon@Rennspec. Make them pay for the prepainted one!

Sorry to hear it. Hope everything will works out . EURO Bumper FTW!


Btw, thanks for the advice on how to remove the water spots. I managed to get most of them all with a hair dryer.

Is the only difference between the euro bumper and the USDM one that there is no side marker?

Sorry if this has been asked before.

Yes, no reflectors. They also have a PDC version for non-US, but not sure if the front system would be retrofittable.

My car has been at the autobody shop for a week now and they are waiting on a trunklid. A hit and run that caused little visible damage but the rear bumper and trunklid both need to be replaced. I am getting tired of waiting. Good luck with yours.

How does that suck? He's getting a euro bumper practically free of charge because of some dumb bitch. We should all be so lucky.

That's why I pay $3,240/year for a covered reserved parking space downtown near work. Doesn't help me away from home or work, though.
