First in an attempt to head off any questions before I get a bunch of
emails ... a Q & A session :)
Q: What's this page for?
A: To try and sell the Esprit bumper I have in my garage. I'm going to
post this to several forums and instead of posting the same information
over and over again I'll just refer to this page.
Q: Why are you selling it?
A: Because the company that I ordered it from sent me the wrong one. I
have a 1997 240SX, they sent me a bumper for a 1995-1996 240SX.
Q: Didn't you check to see if it fit?
A: No, and that was my mistake. I figured it was a high quality bumper
not some cheap knock off so fitment wouldn't be an issue. I had also
been waiting over 8 months to get it; to say I was excited to get it
installed would be an understatement. It wasn't until I went to install
it that it became apparant that I had the wrong bumper. My loss, your
Q: So what exactly am I getting?
A: A professionally painted (black if you can't tell) Esprit fiberglass front bumper for a
1995-1996 240SX with a kevlar lip, 2 JDM Nissan turn signals, 2
sidemarkers, all the wiring needed to connect to the USDM harness, the
brackets needed to install the bumper and instructions in japanese. The
instructions in japanese aren't the best so I had someone translate the
important parts, so you will be getting installation instructions in
Q: Why is it so expensive?
A: The bumper is expensive in Japan. The retail price
in Japan is 78000 yen which is in the low $700 USD range depending on
the exchange. Not to mention, this is (as far as I know) the only
bumper that has been shipped to the USA.
Q: Why is it so cheap?
A: There are some things that may or may not be percieved as problems.
Pictures of things I would want to know about if I were buying the
bumper are below. I need to get rid of it so I can order a new bumper.
Q: Where are you located?
A: I'm in Southeastern Virginia.
Q: Enough with the questions! How much is it?
A: If you live within reasonable driving distance I'll deliver it to
you for $800. I'd really prefer to avoid the hassle of shipping it, but
if you really want it we can work something out.

picture of something else let me know)

Drill slipped when installing left turn signal resulting it 2 holes

Center opening has been shortened some to clear my FMIC. The edge isn't
perfectly flat but would easily be fixed with a belt sander if it
Some scratches on the corners where the bumper meets the fender, would
not be seen when installed, but I thought I'd show anyway. This is the
left side, a similar scratch is on the right.
