Hi there,

Ok... so after 13 years of driving my own car and never damaging it....last week I take my friend's pride and joy S60R (2003) to the shops and somehow damage the front bumper on a curb in a parking bay. It seems to have cracked and snapped (very bottom of car beneath number plate)... anyway to my horror we've been told that it can't be fixed...the whole bumper needs to be replaced. The big issue for me (apart from feeling awful) is the cost. Volvo want £620 for a new one! Does anyone know of anyone that has one for sale in the UK or somewhere that sells such parts cheaper or 2nd hand?? I'm assuming it'll be cheaper to get one 2nd hand and get it painted than buy a brand new one from the dealer?? has anyone else been in this position?? I've been warned that it'll be very difficult to find one 2nd hand.


Thank you from a very guilt stricken friend (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

For the R they sell lots of after market pieces for the front bumper of that car.This is a US company but the Volvo body mods in most cases come from closer to you..
