Front bumper question

Hello,

I think I have just a streak of bad luck.

Today, I have as well damaged my front bumper. 3 years without any damage and now that.
Now, I'm considering to order a new bumper.

But I'm unsure whether I have chosen the right bumper.
Because in my mind it is to cheap.
I'm quite sure that that the right bumper is but I think it is better to ask.

Can anybody tell me please whether these bumpers fits on my Camaro?

It is for a 2011 2LT/RS Camaro.

Thank you very much in advance for your answers.

Mario

Thank you very much for your answer, Sir Nuke.

Is there still anything what I need in order to replace my bumber?
I mean, is there a part at the bumper that cannot removed without to damage or destroy it?

Do you just mean the bumper cover/fascia? There's a difference. The cosmetic part is the cover/fascia for the bumper... if that's all you need I'd spend the extra cash and upgrade to a ZL1 or SS bumper.

Jarvin, as Tommy stated/ask......as long as you are just talking about the fascia cover (the plastic part), its all you should need, that is as long as nothing got destroyed. Obviously we haven't seen your car of what kind of damage was done.

I just mean the fascia cover.

A SS or ZL1 fascia cover on a V6?
Hmm, I have considered to do that. But I don't know whether that is allowed in Germany or not.

Last week I got some trouble with the police just because I have swapped my original DRL bulbs against LED bulbs.
German laws are often very strange. Each new BMW, Audi or Mercedes can have LEDs but my Camaro not.


Anyway, thank you very much for your answers.

A ss front end will have a mail slot and a larger lower grille i believe and no change to the lights. A zl1 front end will get you the 2 extra lights which of course you'll need a wiring harness for. I got Gary's zl1 kit which comes with the two lower housings and halogen bulbs. I changed bulbs though.

These bumper cover looks really good and I could get it already painted. Perfect!
But I have the bad luck to live outside of the US.
Hmm, maybe I find a way to get this part.

Please allow my to ask a maybe strange question. How is the quality?
Is there any risk that this part doesn't fit on a standard 2LT?

Gary uses OEM GM facia, it will fit your v6 perfectly. You will have to have the hood lines adjusted which Gary can do. The hood bulge in the center is wider on the ZL1, The hood bulge is the same on the SS. Gary can help you with everything including paint. PM him for price info.
