*** C/S Bumpers to be discontinued ***

Visual Styling, Spoilers, and rims

I agree, in ten years we're all gunna be screwed. However, I think theres alot more then single digits being sold each year. Think of how many CelicaTech people buy them each year, then the people who don't post and then the people across the world. It all adds up and helps the part get continued production. I would think we have a few more years left, but the end is getting near....

I think they'll be gone within two years. Maybe less than that. Once they're gone they're gone, and all you have left is the aftermarket. You'll probably still have a good supply of hoods, because many don't do the hood and the bumper, they just do the bumper.

Well just to confirm they are still available. I just ordered one as of 2pm est 10/22/07. He was about to tell me how many were left, but then we got off subject and started to chit chat.

BTW the prices have gone up considerably since I bought my first one 5 years ago.

The bumper cover list price is 290 dollars the bumper is 217 dollars. I think that's an increase of over 175 dollars. Even the parts guy was surprised that it went up THAT high. He said normally they go up with time but not that much. He said either they are just going up abnormally for no reason, or they have acutally started production on a few of them in small batches which would account for the higher prices on the new ones (because they were made in such a smaller quanity than the OG bumper covers). I told him that I thought that they didn't redo old parts, but he said he's seen it happen, and one of the signs is when the price goes way up.

In any event, after 430 dollars, I now again have the CS power.

I tried to buy seatbelts for my car the other day, and they only carry the drivers side one.

I dont understand how they can stop making safety products for their cars? That should be illegal!

Hate to revive an old thread but apparently there are only three remaining in stock for north america so unless Toyota brings some more over or makes some more this really could be the end of the line for our supply.

Just ordered mine and it should be in on wednesday :D Only ordered the cover so far ... hopefully will get the rest of the CS stuff by the end of the summer but after seeing how badly Sal's RC crumpled after his low speed accident I'm probably not going to get the aluminum bumper bar - rather run something custom fabbed out of steel to get a bit of the weight savings while protecting the car. :shrug:

That's crazy!

Makes me even happier I already have an RC bumper still in the box just waiting for me.

I'll look into having one made up seeing as it'll be a while before I put mine on my car.

Also having a Canadian source for new RC bumpers would help to keep things nice and cheap.

Australia requests registration papers to prove you are a CS owner before they will order a hood or bumper.
I was recently told that the CS parts that are stocked will be reserved for owners only.
Lucky I am an official owner but it would suck if they kill the parts line.

Can anyone else investigate the situation.... world wide?

Wow that's pretty tough of Toyota but I suppose it does make sense seeing as the car is one of their most historically noted and they don't want every ricer with a GT and a turbo kit to eat up the parts supply.

Actually, it doesn't make sense. Toyota is in a business to make money and really doesn't care about a 20 year old car. They would sell CS bumpers to Honda owners if they could make a sizable profit.

If there is a healthy demand for the bumpers, they should continue to make the supply available.

How much are the bumpers from Toyota?

Yes, I am too lazy to search for that answer at the moment :P
