Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Most bumpers are full of mold release resin when they are first made and if you don't wait for that to work it's way out or bake it a few times and clean it very well to get it out, the paint won't stick. Basically, exactly opposite of what he said.
I had to bake one new bumper 7 times to get the paint to stick to it.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Bummer man, I can see the damage in the dealer pics.

If you want to get a new front end this is a good ebay seller. Email them and they will hook you up! This is a rear bumper but they can get all the parts.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-10...item2a1320cb54

Beyond all that. Replace those Runcraps (tires)!

The drivers side front is probably seperating on the inner side and they ride like crap.

A set of 275/315's will ride so much nicer and a ton cheaper too. Just get a fix a flat kit and a cigarette lighter powered air comp.

I went with Nitto INVO's, but these are NOT to be used in the snow/slush (winter).

Roger that. It sounded like BS.

I am in Houston, so snow will not be a problem. I'll email that guy to see if he has a front bumper for me. Thanks for the link.

The invos are really nice, but what do you think about the vreds?

As for the fix a flat kits, won't the ruin the tpms sensors?

Oops not fix-a-flat (as in the spray in crap, it will ruin your sensors) I meant a plug and patch kit, sorry man

Never ran a set of the Vreds. Checkout BlackOps Autoworks for those and anything carbon fiber.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Couple questions:

Are after market bumper covers the same quality as factory?

Can a small crack in the bumper cover be repaired?

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Yes there is evidently. My dealership said they can get an aftermarket one for $600 less and that is why they took $600 off their offer.

I'll post a pic of the crack in a few minutes.

Re: Damage not disclosed by my dealer

Here is the picture of the crack on the front bumper. It is right by the chrome piece on the driver's side of the bumper cover.

Sorry for the poor picture quality, but my flash was wigging the picture out when reflecting off of the chrome.

they are FULL OF CRAP! If there is a aftermarket alternative for the SRT bumper...its the first Ive heard of it. Tell them to PROVE it. There is a fiberglass srt knockoff on ebay...but thats not a replacement for a polyurethane bumper.
