He said he'll do $180 + shipping via (probably) Greyhound since it's cheaper.

Bumper looks to be in good condition minus the minor scratches and depending on how much you're paying in shipping I'd say 180 for a bump would indeed be a good deal but what do I know?

Argh, I just remembered I still need to buy tires for my SVT wheels. So no bumper for me. Plus I don't feel like having to paint it. I think I'll hold out for a CD Silver one.

What did the subframe bushings do for you?
The stock exhaust is too quiet, what setup are you running?
When I purchased the car it had the aem cai and magnaflow exhaust on it. I purchased a used orp and threw that on. It's a little loud for my taste, and I'd really like to get a borla setup. The bushings helped with smooth shifting and less motor slop.

I'm sure you pretty much know the svtf is pushed to the max from the factory. The few odds n' ends will help you gain some power (ORP, tune, ect.)
