I've recently purchased a set from Ronny and I'm nearing the completion of the installation.

There are a few fitment issues that could the solved by simply putting the bumpers together after they have made them - make sure to ask him to do that.

Also, some of the rubber parts are dried out, so have him check the ones they send out.

If you need more information let me know.

has he given a lead time on this, since he still has to tool up I presume that this will not be a quick turnaround. also is the $1000 plus shipping the bottom line or can he go any lower for additional buyers, I realize he has to make it with his while profit wise but since its a "want" and not a "need" I think I could be a player for around 1k shipped.
thanks mjn

Joni, what is the best way to buy a set of these bumpers? Do you do Paypal? I am ready to order, your company has a reputation for delivering the product, so as far as I am concerned, I am ready to go.

Joni, this just for information. Do you sell the polished stainless steel parts by themselves? If so, how much?

Do appreciate rmlunsford efforts in trying to put this group buy together but probably time to un-Sticky this thread. Maybe move to EGv107 under "67) Exterior"?

Hi all,
I bought the euro bumper set s a couple of years ago now from Roodney as well and I am completely satisfied with the results. I paid around $1450 delivered. The fronts were no problem and actually they fit closer to the body that the originals, however the rears needed some adjustments. I did hear that some correction were already made by the supplier. And yes you can buy the stainless steel pieces separately. Roodney is very helpful and usually responds to email question quickly. I also had problems with the rear valances as the holes to secure them to the frame had to be reposition and re-drilled. Like anything else, the first time is always the hardest. Also, like others had said the rubber is acceptable but not like the original MB rubber. For the price and if you are willing to spent the extra time, it's well worth the purchase price and what you guys are getting on the lower price, its a no brainer.
