Just like in the other group buys on the boards, parts are normally lower when more people are in on the buy. This bumper started from a bumper done by micah then he had to have the mold made then he had to screw around with the company that made them. So with the limited number of bumper and other fees,and not to mention they jacked up the price many of times but micah tookthe blow for it and didnt ask us to pay more, 450 seems pretty reasonable for the bumper to me( thats why i have one).

the hella kit is nice, but there will be many many many produced so thats why its cheaper.

And not to sound like an ignorant person stating the obvious but, why did you post saying that your not participting, what was the point? jus stirring up trouble?

Ohhh... Excuse me. I wasn't sure exactly what you meant by "Hella". My fault.

I had been keeping an eye on the Hella kit, but there's 2 reasons why I didn't want in on that one:

1> I just don't like the front bumber at all. Which is 90% of the reason (and money) why you buy a kit.

2> Something about the whole thing just seemed fishy and unorganized to me personally.

That being said, once the Hella kit begins, maybe they'll price just sides and rears for us people. I like those parts of the kit. And if they could be priced around $350, I just might consider it.

its a great bumper, i own one. it was the victim of a mild accident, and was all cracked and flimsy, but has since been fixed like brand new, and will be put on my car when i get the widebody, and sides and rear from the hella kit, the pre98 one that is (so it could be a while)

Um, I had a Micah Bumper for sale, USMondeo wanted it, held it for a month for him, he then backed out the day before he was to come get it. I have the exact same thing the GB will yeild him, now he's ready to go . Atleast I found a reliable buyer though.

So, lemme get this straight...

USMondeo backed out of a Front SVT Bumper from KnuKonceptz, then backed out of a Rear SVT Bumper from Bicycle019.

I guess it's a good thing you two aren't as sue-happy as most people in the US. You both have legal recourse against him, especially Bicycle019.

Not the kind of rep you wanna have when you're trying to get into Group Buys and people spend a lot of money making a custom-made product for you.

Hey Demonic, thanks for whoring my car...

Looks like there is enough interest to get these made again... just remember... we need to keep this exclusive so a bazillion of these running around isn't cool... Besides, that's why they're in high demand... and of course it's gonna cost more than the hella kit because of the low numbers made. Don't forget to start the production number where it belongs.
