    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

    Re: New Cadillac front bumper?

    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?
