hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

hello all.
come out of work just now and theres a f$Łking massive dent in my drivers side rear bumper. actually pushed it inside out! they mustve hit it at about 20mph.
sad thing is its someone who works there and the CCTV is no joy. looks like im stuffed.


anyway, what i want to know is has anyone got a rear bumper for an 06 hawkeye WRX (or an sti if they also fit) and preferrably in obsidian black?
if anyone knows of one or has one it would be a great help.
or does someone know where i can get a new one cheap and what price im looking at?


im gonna pop down the crash repairer i know to see if he can pop it out, but i doubt it. its about the size of two footballs and dented all the way in to the metal behind.

Re: hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

managed to get a pic in the dark. dont look as bad in pics.

repairable? got a feeling if its popped back out (tried and it doesnt even give a little) its gonna be ugly and bumpy without its old shape. has that sort of sharp corner that edge under the light normally doesnt it

B^stards! You could try heating it a bit to push it out but only to take the bad look of it. Will keep my eyes open for a bumper. I would be taking a good walk around the car park looking for black paint and scrapes on someone elses bumper and look at your bumper closely to see if you can work out what colour the car was that hit you.

Re: hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

well i had a right busy few days trying to hunt the prick down. no luck. cctv at work had me just out of shot. i always park miles away in a lone space to avoid this kind of thing as the place is filled with uninsured untaxed easten euro's and african's... probably the reason they just fncked off without leaving a note.


found 3 white cars with damage in the right place and right height. getting security to call the owners in and bluff them about cctv footage. to be honest though, ALL of the cars they own have smashes and dents all over them. someones even seen one bloke wipe out two cars then get out and walk off without even looking at the damage.


mates bodyshop said it can be heated and popped out but its gonna lose the angle shape part towards the bottom, plus theres a slight split along the top the width of a hair.
seriously how hard is it to push it in that far? they mustve just gone full acceleration.


im lucky its just the plastic and no damage elsewhere, gonna be a new bumper job though they reckon, but will give pop-out a try.


found an obsidian black STI breaking for spares but was told the STI one has a lip round the arch unlike the WRX. i thought my luck was in.
looks like newages before 06 wont fit either :-( subaru price including VAT for new unpainted is 255.

Re: hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

so ive found some rear bumpers yet theyre for the STI...which has the little lip. good news is i found out the rest of the arch is just a stick on piece of plastic not part of the actual metal around the arch.


anyone done this before on here? found a yanky sight that had it, but with no full car photos i couldnt tell if the arches looked too far out from the wheels. has the WRX a different wheel spacing to the STI?

Re: hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

Its a very thin trim mate, go for it. Just don't create a water trap behind.
Just had a quick look around for some replica trims but couldn't see any. None on fleabay either.
You could always get the bumper then look around for the trims after

Re: hit and run W4NKER - rear bumper wanted!!

heres the thread the bloke did a write up of it...

The STi Rear Wheel Fender Arch Install w/pics - NASIOC


only thing is i think they make his wheels look too far into the arches. cant really tell cos theres no full car photo. made me wonder if the STI's have a wider wheel base?
it could actually end up cheaper doing it all that way than getting a new bumper/spray/labour etc.
