This is the kind of feedback I think we needed, we may have to look into having someone do a run of bumpers, preferably abs, does anyone have a connection?

the GT4 bushing GB we had a couple years back was quite quick, but I'd imagine bushings are much faster and easier to produce than the body parts.

I'm just going to pass on doing this, I've gotten a couple bad reviews and I'm getting some heat at home for not making any money, so if someone wants to try and take this over I can try to pass on your info.

Yes I would like t know where, I called two days ago and they had three, I called today and they had one, I bought the one, now they have none , the part number had a d at the end the parts guy said this meant it would be discontinued. But I guess he did say he could not check other dealers only the warehouse.

I find it pretty strange that they will discontinue it as they are still available from toyota in Japan. I mean they can't stock parts for every toyota sold in the states domesticly? We checked for fun here in Sweden the availability for 100pcs and that number was no problem.

You guys are lucky, I'm just going off of what the parts guy said, maybe it's because they were never actually sold in the states because we never get anything cool here.

I have a friend in the Air Force stationed in Japan. I had him check for me 2 months ago at his local Toyota dealership he said they have them but they are also $550USD. And for that price and shipping it here wouldn't be worth it.

I wonder if when the gt4 is able to be imported here if you take one of those vin numbers and use it at toyota?

The one bumper that is left cannot be bought because it's an import part I guess, I just got the phone call from my parts guy, I'm after one more lead right now we will see if it goes through. Fingers crossed.

See I can't get a definitive answer on this, I have a lead on one more bumper that is not in California, the 280 one is the one I tried to get and got denied, I'm hoping I can get the other one, as it is not in Cali so maybe they will release it, if not I say we go Johnny Cash style and someone gets a job at the cdc in Cali and takes it out in their lunchbox. Obviously I'm joking just in case this somehow happens.
