Default **SOLD 3-10-04**Rare German Bumper Cover

**THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS OF 3-10-04**

I am selling this front bumper cover, which is made in Germany for the PT Cruiser.It is *extremely* hard to get these here, and the only place I could find that can get them sells them for $720.00.Part of the reason for the high cost is the exchange rate between the Euro and the Dollar, which has been bad for a while now.For anyone interested, I can refer you to the same guy for the headlamp kit in this picture, which he sells for $699.00.The Grille can also be had for around $199.00.You can use your stock grille and headlamps with this bumper cover.
I'm selling the Bumper Cover *only* (does NOT include the headlamps or grille).This will include all of the lights shown in the picture (clear turn signals,fog lamps,LED indicators), the mesh grille, all wiring, switches,instructions, and screws.The unit is unpainted and is black in color.
This bumper is made to fit Non-Turbo PTs, but with some trimming can be adapted to the Turbo cars.I had planned to put it on my 2003 Dream Cruiser (Turbo) and did a test fit.It looks like it would need minimal trimming on the back side of the opening in front of the Intercooler, and maybe some trimming on the bottom where it meets the bottom of the radiator core support.
The picture below is from the company's German web site.I can almost guarantee you have never seen one of these on a car in person, and I have only seen one picture of one installed on a car even on the Internet that wasn't in Germany, and that guy was in England.

I'm planning on being at the show in Daytona, so I will probably bring it with me.If you buy it, you can pick it up there and save yourself some money, or I can check on prices for shipping via Greyhound Bus (I understand this is the cheapest way to go for something this size).

I'm asking $500 for it, but that is negotiable.I know that sounds steep, but considering you most likely will never see anyone else with this part, and that it includes all of the lighting, wiring, switches, instructions, etc., it's really a deal.

If you're really interested in it, you won't hurt my feelings by making an offer that's under $500.

I am in Metro Atlanta, and as I said, I can ship the item, but the buyer assumes all shipping/insurance charges.

Really, it's more than a bumper cover - it's the whole front below the headlights, isn't it? Looks all one piece.

Yep. Some people call them bumper covers, others call them front fascias, but yes, it goes from the bottom of the grille and headlamps and below.

Also, you do not need to remove or modify anyhing behind it like the bumper brace, etc.

So this german cover just goes over the bumper already on the car? you don't have to take the other one off? I ask because I am finding this whole bumper cover issue confusing for some odd reason. I got in an accident and need to replace my front bumper. I was going to get an aftermarket bumper, but I know that some of them just fit over the stock bumper and others replace it. Not sure what this is and I will soon be going to germany for a few years. would like to pick this piece up while I am there.

No no no no no............you have to remove the existing bumper cover, fascia or whatever you want to call it.The actual bumper is the metal bar underneath the part you see.
You remove the one currently on the car, which holds your fog lamps, etc., and install this one in it's place.
