Default 2009 Lexus IS250 Bumper Conversion (2011 F-Sport)

So I got in a wreck a month ago. (Was driving on a major street and this idiot pulled out in front of me from a median turn lane). Anyways, I decided to go from my stock 2009 IS bumper to a 2011 F-Sport (full package). Here are some before and after pics. Tell me what you think!

This is my car before wreck

Nice upgrade. Did the insurance pay for F-sport bumper?

Thanks man. They did pay part of it. I had to pay a difference though ($700), because the damage was less than the F-Sport bumper kit cost. Sewell did honor the CL member price so it wasn't too bad

just got in a wreck the other day, similar damage.

do you have a list of the part numbers for the swap?
I'm wondering if it's just the bumper cover and grill that needs to be swapped.

Check Sewell website, there's the 2011 F-sport Front Bumper upgrade option (the whole thing with all the necessary parts minus the foam absorber), it's pricey but it's worth the money, at least to me.

I got the complete F-Sport bumper upgrade. You'll need some parts of the package if you want the bumper (fog lamp assemblies, brackets, etc). Plus the lip spoilers are included in the package if you want the complete look.

I thought the paint was not even close to matching and then I did a double take and realized that the hood was mainly covered in snow.

Hey i have a question, i just purchased the complete bumper upgrade from sewell for my 2009, not the fsport kit tho, although it looks just like it. With the bumper swap did u leave on the previous bumper energy absorber or did you change it.?
