Opinion on big decisions!

I know this is completely opinionitive but just bare with me. I have been saving up for a Comp oil less turbo for quite a while now and am only a couple 100 bucks short of ordering it. But recently it's come to my attention a buddy of mine has wrecked his Roush that has a Shelby front bumper on it and will part it out. He would sell me the bumper and all the wiring, harnesses, headlights and fogs for around 750+/-. I have always been super interested in getting one but just not paying 2 grand for a new one. I need help making a very expensive decision one way or the other and figured this was the place to help. Any opinion is appreciated!

A Shelby bumper on a Roush.... Hmm never heard of someone doing that before... Was the bumper damaged in anyway in the crash? Plus if it's a different color you'll need to find out how much it would be to repaint it. And you might want to get an instruction guide on removal and installation.

What a collection!! The car actually pulled the look off really well. Bumper wasn't hurt at all, and just typical scratches and chips. Repaint is gonna be like 300, and I'm gonna call the company that makes it for removal.

Opinion on big decisions!

Honestly I'd probably go with the bumper. It's a good deal that won't last long. The turbo kit is always out there when you scrape up the cash again. On a personal note, if it's a Roush mustang and the rear spoiler is in tacked get it too. I think the Roush spoiler is by far the best looking spoiler for our cars (05-09). Then again I think our cars are the best looking mustangs, by far, since the classics.
Thank you on the complement on my cars.
