Fiat front bumper

Hello Fiat community,my name is Denis,im from Romania and im asking for help.
Recently i hit a wild animal and wrecked my front bumper.
My car have Abarth body kit and i cant find any parts. I searched everywhere for another simillar front bumper but with no success. Maybe you guys can help me find another one i could buy.
I really love my car and it breaks my heart to see her like this..

Re: Fiat front bumper

I had the same happen with a Panda 100HP. The bumpers are 5x the cost of a standard Panda bumper so I'm looking out for one that's been hit on the left so I can make one good one from the two broken ones.

All you can do is keep watching eBay across Europe and see what happens.

Re: Fiat front bumper

It's quite possible a standard bumper could be modified to look like a 100HP but its a lot of work

I sucked it up and fitted a standard bumper. The back rubber strips are removed with a view to filling and smoothing the sides. The middle 1/3 will be done satin black and either side in car body colour. The 100HP arch extensions and front splitter look like they can be fitted to the standard bumper.

It wont be a 100HP bumper but the look will be close.

Itís a Grande Punto so not sure why youíre talking about a 100hp ??


The Abarth Grande didnít sell well across the whole of Europe, you either have to find an aftermarket replica on a tuning site, trawl eBay all over Europe, or suck it up and visit the fiat dealer who will be able to get you one if you have enough leu

Did you actually bother to read what I wrote?

My post was being empathetic to the OP's problem and saying how I proposed to solve exactly the same issue on my car. The car type is 100% irrelevent to how the smashed bumper problem could be solved.
