Default Best place to buy a Euro bumper?

I'm in Austin and want to upgrade to a Euro bumper. If it has the Hamann foglight inserts, all the better. It needs to be a straight bolt up. I don't want to have to 'modify' anything for it to fit. Thanks guys.

got mine from Tischer. bodysdop had to modify the brackets and cut them off the old usa bumper and melt them into the new euro bumper. bodyshop told me the euro bumper I provided was for cars with the older metal bumper, not for cars with the composite bumpers.. go figure. Tischer told me it was the only euro bumper available.

2 cents..

cliff notes: it wasnt bolt on, but did not require a ton of work to get it to fit. cost me another hour or so in labor and lost the use of my old, stock bumper.

Visually, the only difference between the US and the Euro bumpers are the reflector holes. If you have the shop patch and fill the holes you should have the same look. It costs a little more to patch, fill, and repaint the original bumper than to paint the new Euro bumper, but the money you save with the Euro bumper (about $300 IIRC) should make up for it. The good thing is you know it will fit w/o any modification. That's what I did with mine.

I found out last month that Jesse Solorio is no longer working in the wholesale dept. He is replaced by Gabriel Gonzalez. He can still get you good prices like Jesse did though.

Bumping this back up. Anyone know where the best place is currently for a Euro Bumper? And if not, how about just a regular OEM bumper?

Are they all like this? No different part number for the newer style carbon support beam?
