Found 99-01 Cobra Front Bumper, price too high?

Some guy is selling his 01 Cobra front bumper with the fog light bezels and fog lights, he's asking $400, is that too high? It is off his car, used but in great condition!

I guess the guy doesn't know what he has... He bought a Cobra R bumper for his car. I would've kept the 01 Cobra bumper.

What kills me is another guy had one a week ago, selling it for $150 and I didn't see it til the day after. It didn't have the fog lights or bezels tho, and those are expensive too

I wouldn't mind though. Original ones will remain original, aftermarket ones will be aftermarket ones, they won't necessarily lose their value so much for someone that appreciates OEM stuff

Exaclty. The value of having one will go down, people usually want something they can't have,or is hard to get, whenever I played halo 3 on xbox there was a curtain armor that was almost impossible to get, but later on the armor became easy to get and no one really cared about it after everyone was getting it

Be careful with aftermarket. Could be some fitment issues there.

I'm waiting for a private party to pull a mold of one and get group buys going on the bigger forums but it probably will never happen. From personal experience, Repros can be VERY hit or miss as far as fit.

Sounds like a smart plan. Always wanna keep it safe and wait for the perfect one. I bought a 03-04 bumper and am slowly starting to wish I woulda got an 99-01

Do the bumpers really look that good? I know when I got my bumper is was kinda okay to me and I thought about putting an termi front bumper on there and was also gonna put blacked taillights instead of amber but since they are kinda rare I decided to keep both.

I love the way the 99-01 looks with the middle of it painted black. Just looks amazing. Actually had the chance to get one of those bumpers when I was shopping for a bumper

NEVER get a fiberglass front bumper. One good rock and it'll crack on you. Urethane or even Duraflex won't.
