Pamp... I do not own a Bentley and $1,500 for a bumper that I might not use is not me
It seems like you are trying to insult me? Why??? Did I do something wrong?
If I offended you I am sorry if not... Please be nice to people that you have absolutely no idea about!
For the record... I do not own a Bentley! And I am not a "Big Shot Hollywood Producer"... " Are you "persona non gratis?"... you ask? As far as I know I have offended no one! And who the hell is jrann? I am not sure where all this is coming from?
Also I recently bought a perfect and complete 1973 front bumper on ebay for $175... So the BMW parts specialists price I was quoted of $1,200-1,500 each bumper is fair but not me... There is also a very good chance that I will never use the bumpers and do not want to spend big money on parts that will just hang in the rafters....
I keep seeing complete and sometimes running rusty E9s listed for sale at $1,500-3000 so it is very likely that there are numerous rear bumpers lying around...
I also looked at a Euro rear bumper locally last week that was OK but the chrome was a little weak.
Does the US bumper have the holes for the license lights?
All US bumpers have holes for license plate lights, on the `73 it is covered with small plastic chrome covers as lights were moved to tail panel. The `73 rear bumper is mounted with a hoop to the body and may need some work to mount it to the earlier short mounts.
