opposedforces.com for part numbers and diagrams

best to source from your local dealership. shipping charges kill any useful savings.

Bumper covers come unpainted. Painting will add about $200 to the cost.

Ah yes forgot to mention that. Car manufacturers stop producing spare paint collision parts after a few years and your best option will be a primered bumper. Sucks, since nothing compares to factory paint!

Some manufacturers offer pre-painted parts for several years. Subaru has never offered pre-painted bumpers to my knowledge. The only car company that does with consistency is Volvo.

Even things like color coded door handles and mirrors usually come raw/unpainted, though some companies will offer them in colors until supplies begin to dry up.
