2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, V Front bumper in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Hey everyone, I am looking for a V front bumper. I just have the CTS but I am painting my ...
So you are saying you don't have a bumper then? Look, the only reason I want the bumper is cause it has the "built in lip". If every other aspect was the same as the CTS I would still get it just for the lip. I am not trying to look like a V. I wasn't looking to swap spindles and change the bolt pattern or look for V badges. I this offends anyone, I apologize, I am not trying to build a clone.
It's going to be quite expensive if you try to source all the parts separately, your best bet would be to find an entire front bumper off of a salvaged car.
You'll need the:
chrome hood trim,
foglight brackets, (I believe the actual fog lights are the same)
front wheel well liners with the brake duct mounts
I replaced my front bumper twice and trust me when i tell u that itll be a miracle to find one secondhand. And since youll need to get everything else( grilles, etc) its going to be an expensive upgrade. Good luck
I think you can get a new one for around $450 from Luke. I want to replace mine because it has a crack but the cheapest I can get one locally is over 1000 euros, and there is no good way to get it shipped from Virginia to Germany since it is so large. So now I am just living with the crack.
Either way, it's going to be an expensive ordeal. And, getting bumpers painted is always a major pain in the ass, they never seem to be able to get the color to match correctly, and the paint is never as durable as the factory paint. I don't know why they need to design cars with these horrible plastic bumper covers anyway...so stressful and aggravating.
Now that I think about it, you should just sell your whole car and buy a V. It will be cheaper.
Well I found one. For those of you that may be looking, I found one from a place in Toronto, Ontario. It is a brand new bumper. It isn't made by GM but it is a full urethane bumper made by company in the US. The guy has sold 17 with not one complaint so far. He sells them for $399. He also sells most the other parts too like the grills and fog lights. I don't need the upper grill but I do need the lower one and it is $220. Parts aren't too bad and I don't have to have it shipped, he is close to me. I will be using my sport grill for the upper grill. I will also be getting the clear fogs and side marker combo off of eBay for $290. That's the light and the bracket. So that will be under $1000 for everything I need, that's not too bad of a price.
