Hey everyone im in a bit of a bind , i dont know what to do .. a couple weeks ago a city truck backed into my car in the front ..

the damage : scuffed up left side of bumper right under headlight , headlight scratched, and i recently noticed that the fender and hood lines are little more gaped open than normal

the problem : i got estimate for damage and its going to be 800$ , city cut me a check for 800$ , and was gonna go through with it , but was thinking its 800 $ lol !

Get the bumper cost,me 180$ the foglights covers are 20$ for the left and right now the lower grill is 200$ I opt out from buying a 200$ piece of plastic that cost more then the bumper cover.
where did you purchase this stuff at
Dealer parts dept. oh you will need a koups vin num. They have 4 diffrent types of bumpers with diffrent part numbers I believe they are all the same. To be safe find a koup manufactured around your sedan manufactures date and grab the vin.
Oh okay thanx for letting me know , , btw did you install yourself or have dealer do it ?
Search automotivepineapple on eBay, they have the upper and lower grille for 60-70 dollars each.
the Koup front bumper fits the sedan/hatchback?

+1 With Crock's idea.

Also, how bad is the scratch on the headlight. I wanted to swap my Koup Lenses with a Sedan set...

Hell, I'll even give you my VIN# so you can order the rest of the parts. Maybe we can work something out. LoL

I believe you need KOUP fenders for it to work completely....

An easy way to look for the Koup bumper, or any other part you need is to go to google, type in what you're looking for, then on the left hand column click shopping.

I just tried it and I got several results for Koup bumpers, most of them are painted though.
I did the Google search and nothing came up for koup front bumper, just bilet grills .

Anyone have a link of a front bumper ,

And also crock89 if you have a picture of koup front bumper with sedan fenders send me pic so I can see how off it looks , thanx
i've never bought anything from here so i don't know how reliable it is. but here's the link. i think others from the forum have have bought things from here. i could be wrong though
