Post Rear Bumper Covers
Hello,

I'm a new 928 owner who is having a new paint job done on my 1989 S4. The rear bumper cover is deformed (see the photo), and I've noticed the same problem on another 928 I've seen locally. I'm guessing that the summer heat, age and some inherent stresses are causing these to warp.

The bodyshop has tried to heat the deformation out but it just keeps coming back. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it worthwhile to buy a good used bumper cover or can this somehow be fixed?

Cheers, Cameron

Welcome to the Board. I've never seen a bumper cover fix well after it warps. I don't over there in Hong Kong, but those Bumper Covers are a dime a dozen here in the USA. In my opinion, find a good used one and have it painted when you paint the rest of your car.

Thanks Dano. That was kind of what I suspected.

Well, I guess I'll just throw money at the problem...

Cheers

Will do!

She's in the body shop for another 3 weeks then I'll get some decent photo's of a Marine Blue 928 in the marina!

Cheers
