    No im serious lol, I have heard their HOODS arnt that great but I know lots that have used their bumpers and they have worked well. Their saleen wings also fit better then direct from saleen.

    Cervinis.com they deffently have the best stuff but the cost is pretty darn high.

    I hear ya Matt..I just figured a company like ABC..which by the way has changed names tons of times, is a risk. I would spend a little more and get top dollar. Also, http://www.wingswest.com/ is another great company making a great product. Sometimes cutting corners costs you more in the long run, as I am sure many a Mustang owner has experienced.

    Someone else on a forum told me that too ??? I cant understand it, when I called Capital Ford in Wilmington NC the price for the bumper was ( and still is ) 310.00 and that is with the sales tax included. It was shipped from Memphis TN. and took 2 days to get here. I wonder if each dealership sets there own price and pockets some of the extra cash? ???

    I just contacted my friend at Ford, he is in parts. I need to get this figured out.
    SNAKEBIT:
    03 Cobra Rear Bumper
    $384 list
    $419 Customer price
    $300 For us (not including shipping)

    95 Cobra Front Bumper
    $650 list
    $700 Customer Price
    $385 From him
    He figures $500 tax and shipped.

    Not that it matters the rear bumper is no longer produced by Ford in 98 or 03. He suggested 5.0 Resto

    after seeing this I am wondering if the dealers do set their own prices for parts, I mean why would I get mine for 310 TOTAL and your Ford dealer sell it for OVER 400?????? I don't get this at all :-\ oh and I didn't get any special price on mine, I just called for a price check and that's what it was. So someone tell me why there is such a difference in price on the SAME product just at diffrent Ford locations ??? ???


    and the reason I didnt go with 50 resto was that the bumper was around 350 and then it would cost 100 bucks to ship and I would have to be here to receive it because it did not come by UPS, they bring them on a big truck

    It's probable like gas stations, dealers, even McDonalds. Location, location, location. If they are paying a ton more in rent, taxes, shipping,, they probable make it up this way. I live near NYC, and even being 30 miles away I see the prices in stores change from one to another. Just a guess!! My friend tells me those are set prices though. But they do have a little flexibilty. INtrestin though right..thought you would like it. Call your place and ask for the price on a 95 Cobra Front Bumper. When he saw the price he told me to go to 5.0 Resto..he was stunned. lol
