My car is there now. Only one qualified paint shop in the area apparently, up in Marin. So while straightforward, the process is involved and they expect it will take a couple of weeks.

I think the guys at the dealership were more excited than I was! :D

I wonder what's so involved about swapping OEM bumpers.

Usually nothing.

Car has to be sent 60 miles to a "certified" paint shop.
I have an integrated radar detector that has to be reinstalled which may not be straightforward since the carbon piece has different openings than the standard.
I have a clear bra that needs to be reapplied including to the carbon piece.

I think it is going to be pretty cool. The shop had a surprise for me today and I told them to go ahead with it. Stay tuned!

I would have Premier wrap that spendy bumper, not Elite.

Its the MSO one Ken,i asked earlier,think its 15k in the UK,but I haven't costed it up yet!
You can't get the HS version and I'm pretty sure that's what was pictured. As for the MSO bumper the none HS version, it cost $30k up here in Canada before painting and install, that's before the supposed price increase. Cheers....??

Only quoting what the OP says it is,i know you cannot get the HS bumper,but GOPLAY just said it was the MSO one,not the HS one:confused::)
