WTB : GTI or R front Bumper
« on: Jan 21, 18, 11:26 »
it may be cheaper for me to get a GTI or R bumper then to buy the Golf front lip for my sportwagen

Pure White preferred

I'm looking for a GTI front bumper too.

the best I've found so far is to go on car-part.com and search locally. They are around $300-$400 but will need to be slightly repaired and painted from whatever collision they were in.


Good luck and let me know if you find a better source! :)

$300 - $400 for a complete bumper with all grilles/plastics or just the bumper cover only?

I've seen both the cover only and some with the main grille, they don't have the extra pieces. There is a full take off for sale on ebay for $750 USD.

Yeah $750 USD sounds about right for a used bumper.

Check on craigslist etc in Washington State too. I've had good luck finding stuff that doesn't come up very often up here.

I love how the blue one has a dozen holes punched in it. His pricing isn't very good. You can buy a new one from VW for that price.

Once you purchase the grilles, washer covers, cap, related plastics it gets expensive.

Yeah, I made this guy offers a couple of times  that are reasonable for either one of the bumper covers, but he keeps saying the price is firm.

are the ones on the R just the DAP front sensor holes?  Then it becomes real expensive

No front bumper but this guy is parting out a R down in Kent Washington if you're looking for other parts.

Looks like it's all gone already. That was quick.
