Hello everyone. Last night I went around a roundabout at about 30km/h and my #$&# TOYO tyres decided not to grip. This resulted in hitting the curb with the front left of my bumper, and as a result I am now needing a new one. Does anyone know some sort of price to replace it?? And would I better better off spending a little more and getting a GT style front bumper instead??

Cheers

Gutters tend to jump out at 30km/h......

Yeah I am in no extreme rush... duct tape is working at the moment and it isn't all that bad. I bought the mags today (Zenetti Kaotic's 18 inch in the wide pack) and they will arrive friday or monday, so lowering it will take the rest of my pay packet off me.

I will probably look at getting the new bumper in 4 weeks, so I may hold out for the GT style, however will this hang lower than the standard BA front bumper?? Because without matching skirts and rear it may look pretty stupid.
