Rear Bumper Question

Recommended Posts

The center section of my rear bumper is fading on top and starting to rust on the bottom. The corners are like new. I believe it's a '73 bumper. I'm looking to either replace (just the center) with either a good used one, re-chrome it or buy new which ever is most cost effective. In searching for a good used one, I'd like to know if the center sections is the same for bumpers with either short or long corners?

If anyone has a good used center section or knows someone who does, please let me know.

Thanks...

brandon does a nice job. You need a 71-73 center section because of the rubber strip and the subsequent holes for fasteners

Thanks for the info. The only problem is that I live in Toronto and shipping across the border, to/from Texas may be expensive. Shipping stuff in the US is pretty reasonable, from Canada, not so much. I'll look into it though.

A new center section is 350. Most large stuff gets expensive but a center section wrapped well wont be bad. just pad it well

In the US, but a new center section is $540 inc. tax from BMW Canada.
