    I also got offered these for 450 dollars plus the 160 shipping but only option was stainless, through a Facebook thing. Were the same pictures as you have posted up.

    I will likely be using a pair on the next car.

    I’m confused! Never said other wise, just offered what I thought could be a good option on your group buy, just as they seem cheaper.

    Why be confused ? We're both trying to help others - no ?

    Why? Sometimes I’m easily confused.

    Yes, all trying to do our bit to help out.

    Yes, it seems like it's best for everyone to order direct so please forget a group order.

    Well, I’ll order a set to see how much they end up at and what the quality is like.

    I don’t think I want the front though.

    I'll be ordering a few sets (chrome and s-steel) - have some people interested over here.

    Which brand did you order from?




    I really only need a front and would like to order just this if possible. Not sure which brand you guys are talking about.

    If you are ordering some in a group I'd be interested in joining for a just the front smooth chromed bumper if possible. Trying to keep costs down so more for the rebuild and my rear is good, just needs re-chromed when money permits, also thinking about making it a one piece unit.

    I got a set from bumperautomobile earlier in the year. Worked out £522 all in. Didn't pay a penny when they landed in the UK from Vietnam, so confirms they slip through no problem.

    I might have a front as I’d like a Monte Carlo spec front

    Fitment and quality was good? SS or Chrome?



    let me know if you want to sell it.

    SS, initial impressions good but not yet fitted as waiting to get my car back.

    Knowing exact setup would be nice also, offset and suspension setup.

    Need to replace mine before I invest in a new st of tyres for next year as long overdue.

    For those wanting chrome, why not get the stainless ones plated?

    As an update.

    Just been hit with the dreaded duty and vat bill.

    A total of £26 with the £12 handling charge. :)


    So that’s £528 all in!

    Well done Jason
    Import VAT is 20% on cost of goods plus shipping so having paid $610 on those it is amazing you only paid £14 VAT as it should have been over £100. Perhaps your supplier made a mistake on the 'declared' invoice value ;)

    Thats it. Worse case was £640ish all in.

    Yes, even at the higher figure it's a good price and seems you have found the lowest cost supplier in Vietnam, closest to the manufacturer or working on smallest margins. Happy with the quality ? What about the reverse sides, painted dark blue/black ?

    I don't know yet, just paid the bill to release for delivery.

    Might just be some Vietnamese cheese turns up. I'll post up decent pics.

    Just cutting out the middle men seems to help :)
