For the top reinforcement bar and bumper skin shipped to my door it was just under $400.

That doesn't include the grills or aluminum crash bar.

The RC bumper is definitely an epic look for the trac. But I think the idea of going to a virtually weightless crashbar can cause alot of trouble.
15kmh crash did this to my RC aluminum crash bar... The other car basically had no damage!

Wow, when did that happen?

That is unfortunate, but imagine what would happen without a crash bar/bumper? I know you compared it to the US OEM bumper, but man...i honestly hate the look of it...

Just to put this thread back on topic...

Picked up my RC/CS bumper today and my friend at Toyota told me it was the LAST ONE in Canada and that there are only TWO bumpers left in the Toyota stock house in California.

Additional interesting stuff about the RC bumper... It is one of the only bumpers to actually ship in its own box and is one of the most expensive bumpers made by Toyota - this includes the new Lexus/Toyota replacement ones.

All that being said; if you want an OE RC/CS bumper better get on the phone N-O-W! Only two more and then you'll be stuck buying one of those laminate/fiberglass copies from Poland. :shrug:

I just ordered one from wilde toyota in west allis. they say theres still 4 on the west coast. I bought one of them, Im assuming toyota shuffles these around and keeps a small amount in the us at all times. :shrug: whether they still make them?... doubtful, but possible. If I knew how to mold these I would start, and offer them for alot less than 340$ :bangshead: I might try to get my hands on a spare and see what i can do/experiment.

i don't get why anyone would want a brittle fibreglass copy be it from Poland or elsewhere :shrug: .

if you wanted to import a genuine Toyota RC or Carlos Sainz bumper (with headlight washer jet cut outs) from the UK, Belgium or Japan then try www.cheaptoyotaparts.co.uk

The main reinforcement bar (aka you actual bumper) is not necessary to put on the bumper skin (the CS bumper fascia).

However...not recommended as you will end up with a lot more damage than what happened above....

I guess the Canadian system isn't 100% correct as to the remaining US stock; however there for sure are none left in Canada.

Also I'd only recommend swapping in the aluminum bumper support over the stock crash bar if you're turning your car into a track only car that actually needs the weight savings. For those of you that got the aluminum stock with your RC/CS... DRIVE CAREFULLY PLEASE! :cry:
