'03-'04 front bumper

Would any members have an interest in updating their earlier MY front bumper with newer '03-'04 MY front bumper? I am very close to purchasing a new bumper and wondering if there's a market on here for mine. It is in great condition.

Also interested, pm sent. I assume the bumper will be complete as on the car.

Of course the bumper is complete, and the black on the slats are Plasti-Dip, so if you would prefer them the original silver, it peels off super easy. I'm not sure how I'll price it yet, I will need to do some research.

There are two on ebay now....I was looking at an 04 back earlier this year on ebay. Several were available, used, prices where all over the place. I had contact one fellow that had a complete descent one for $350 plus $50 shipping. When I checked on it a few days later it had been removed not sold.

I bought an '03 front bumper cover a couple of years ago, and I paid $400 shipped if that helps.

What bumper style will you be installing instead of the OEM one?

The shipping charge can be a real deal breaker.

Have you decided to sell your 03-04 bumper?

Greyhound can be a relatively cheap way to ship big stuff like bumpers.

Yes, I'll be selling it as soon as the GT3 comes in and I get it painted.

Shipping charge $25.00? That's a very good price.
Wanted to buy used OEM bumper cover from another member about 250 mi away, and he was quoted $100.00+ shipping from both UPS and GREYHOUND.
Hope yours arrives O.K.

Is this still available? I'm assuming you could ship it in the box your GT3 bumper arrives in.
