    New Cadillac front bumper?

    Can anyone link me to where I could buy an already painted 2009 front bumper? I want to replace mine because it was drilled straight into for the license plate

    EBay. I don't think any parts suppliers will have any pre painted.

    It may be cheaper just to take it to the auto body and have them fill in and re spray

    They don't come pre-painted. And I have not found any after-market companies that offer them pre-painted due to color match issues with the quarter panels on the car itself. Here is a website for you for painted bumper plugs if you want a temporary fix until you can get your bumper and have it painted and matched to the rest of your CTS.

    I agree, take it to a reputable body shop and have them fix the bumper and paint it on the car. That should get you get you a paint match. Much easier than getting a new bumper.

    No half decent body shop will paint a bumper on the car.

    This website seems like a great temporarily fix but it doesn't offer cadillac plugs any recommendation on which car type would be best to use for a pearl white cts?

    My dealer did my back bumper that way and it came out great.
