      If you want to travel to Staten Island check out www.xclusvautosports.com
      Remember you get what you pay for. You might save 50-100 now and you'll be having it redone in a few months. Trust me I've been to PLENTY of body shops. Xclusv has never let me down or anyone I have sent there.

      When having any bumper painted make sure FLEX additive is done. This also adds to the cost. If the flex is not added, your bumper will begin chipping and peeling from driving as it flexes around because its plastic. Biggest mistake people make when looking to have a cheap paint job done.
      My other other car has 2,150HP per axle.

      I made a thread just before didnt see this one but I can second Xclusive. They painted my bumper on my r and matched the reflectors. They did a spectacular job. I just cant make the drive due to work and my wedding coming up. If I had a little more free time I would def make the trip.

      They are very reasonable I've found. Any cheaper and the shops start cutting corners and it really shows. I would guess they'll come in around $300-400 for a front bumper, but they'll have to tell you obviously.
