    2008 STS read bumper diffuser

    My VIN is: 1G6DX67DX80101893.

    I need a new rear bumper diffuser, could you please provide a quote for this item. Also how much would shipping be to 20148?

    When I bought the my car, the previous owner had painted the front diffuser and back rear diffuser (the gray plastic mesh/egg crate thing at the bottom of the front and rear bumpers) black to match the paint on the car. I really don't care for this look. Unfortunately my car was hit in a parking lot yesterday afternoon. Only damage was to the front bumper area. My local Cadillac dealer is going to repaint the bumper and also replace the front diffuser with a normal gray one as part of the insurance claim. I want to order a rear one to replace my current painted one once I get the STS back

    Thanks!

    Chris

    you're talking about #15, right?

    the parts catalog calls it a rear bumper insert

    #15891223
    $281.19 - list price
    $207.38 - your price

    i don't stock it and would have to order from GM which will take about 4 days for me to get

    Number 15 would be the exact part I am looking for. Let me get through all this insurance headache.... then I will PM you so we can work out how to contact you to place the order.

    Unfortunately, Statefarm and my local Cadillac Dealer's collision center don't quite see eye to eye on the repair quote... I hate insurance

    that sinks... we're a StateFarm 'Direct Repair Shop' which basically means that our estimators act as the adjuster and deal with the insurance company directly so you don't have to really be involved

    ... do you know what is in contention on their repair estimate?
