Hi all

Thinking of buying a Duraflex front bumper.

All the products are in the states and nobody can give me a definitive answer online.

All the products says 2012-2016.
I guess this is because the R172 wasn’t released until 2012 in the USA?

So nobody will say with any certainty on the shops i visit that it fits the European 2011 R172.

Is there a difference in the US version that means it wouldn’t fit my 2011?

And if anyone has an alternative to the Wald or Duraflex let me know.

I don’t want an AMG or 55 bumper.

I like the shape of Duraflex or Wald.
Any other things I might look at besides?

If the Duraflex fits I want that bumper.

Look up oem part numbers for US and UK, if they match then the duraflex should.

https://slk-links.neocities.org/EPCLINKS.HTM for US.
One of our datacard team can check for your specific UK car with VIN.

Just check out some US pics too.
Sometimes they have some extra amber reflectors and such.

I'd expect same model to fit, just may be cosmetic, rather than fitment differences.

Thanks.

I just can’t get one at a decent price.
Lowest quote so far is around £1600 and that’s too much for a bumper.

Expect to do some work on the Duraflex. Fitment is usually decent, but not great on their products.

Just chat with them and the part # are not the same for a 2011/2012. So as stated look at the Vin and compare them that way also. Under $600 for one here in the states for a 2011.

I’ve now ordered a Wald set from Alibaba. Taking a chance but I like a project.
