http://www.ebay.com/itm/09-11-MERCEDES-BENZ-SLK55-AMG-BUMPER-FRONT-OEM-/370502377251?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year:2009|Model:SLK55+AMG&vxp=mtr&hash=item5643a99f23

do u think this part is legit?

it is "remanufactured"... i believe it means that there was a crack/damage

and they fixed it up

my friend at the body shop told me not to buy a cracked/refurbished bumpers becuz it will crack/bend later when u drive a lot and paint comes off.

iono what do u guys think? new parts cost over $1000 each front,sideskirt, rear... and i dont want to spend that much :/

It's a bit hit or miss razr - if they are repaired properly, the repairs are actually stronger than the original material.

Try www.parts.com, it alot cheaper then dealer and it oem parts. I think the front bumper is around $800.

Also your car is a pre-facelift which I believe means that this bumper is not simply a bolt-on. There are foam inserts and other stuff that you have to get. I think this guy (CLICKY!) has done a conversion from pre- to post-facelift on his car and might be able to tell you more about what you need.
