Coupe rear bumpers?

Just a quick question ... are the XA rear bumpers on the 4 door the same as the Coupe's XA-XC (not Landau)??

Hmmm .. It's only because it may be cheaper to do a change over with GT performance than to have mine redone. Gt performance dont do a coupe rear.. There is aparently a place in Newcastle that does really good work.

Re: Coupe rear bumpers?

Was going to get mine from GT performance but found it cheaper to go to place in Dandenong that reco all chrome bumpers. Mine were $250 each for the Landau....

Yep, XA Sedan rear bumpers are the same as the XA/B/C coupes. Found this out while looking for a spare rear bumper. As soon as the guys would hear my American accent, the rarity and price went up so......I started asking for XA Sedan bumpers and those were MUCH cheaper. Of course, the wreaking yard b@st@rds do the samething up here so I assume they all (regardles of country of origin) go to the same "f*ck-the-customer" school of business!
