Default IS350 Front Bumper Options

I recently had a little fender bender that might involve replacement of a front bumper as well. I was wondering what are my options as far as front bumper replacement? I have a 2006 IS350. So far I can think of:

1.Stock 06
2.Facelifted 09+
3.IS-C(?)
4.2011 Bumper? (wondering if this one fits or is available for order)

Eh they should all fit since the fender and the hood are the same. Just know that if you decide to do it, some bolts might not be exactly the same and more importantly, the fog light assemblies are different especially on the IS-C. Also you'll need a new grill for the different bumper. This might ending costing a bit more in the long run. Just a heads up!

And you can also attempt to find an element 114 front bumper or the exiv concept bumper which i've never seen aside from release photos. But if I were you, I'd stick with the 06-08 front bumper. It has the most aftermarket options as far as lips go.

If you get the IS-C, don't forget there are very few kits for that.

the 2011 doesnt look like it has any lip kits for it since its completely different..you should get a 09 and add a lip, or go with a isf bumper but it needs body work and trimming

I would go with Artisan Spirits if it fits the budget.
