The front bumper is solid but looks nasty - much worse than it really is underneath. It was on the car when it was front-ended but remarkably regained it's shape with no structural damage other than needing a very small amount of filler in an older repair (spent chewing gum sized hole) that opened up. It looks like it was silver originally. I avoid putting paint on myself as I don't have access to a good cheap sprayer but I'm sure others will. So yes, it will need stripping and respraying but it's a cheap option at £30. The rear bumper is in useable shape and only got changed out as I had a set of colour-matched panels including bumpers. It's generally very nice but does have an amateurish spray patch on the nearside, some paint rash nearby but largely underneath/under the eye line and a small chunk out near number plate. There are some scratches but these should polish out or be greatly minimised and some small touch-in is required too. Ultimately needs painting too but useable for now as is. £25 Collection from Swindon (or Swansea) or if you are within 15 minutes of the M4 between Swindon and Swansea will drop off for you or meet you. Also happy to meet up as far as Newbury services if it helps those from the South East.
