I have an 05 LS and the front bumper is cracked on the drivers side corner. i want to purchase a new one online if at all possible but i cant seem to find one like mine. my LS has painted molding all the way around the car including the bumper and it appears that it isn't a removable molding as far as i can tell. whats the best place i can find the correct replacement bumper online? i know i can prolly go to the dealer but that's going to be my last option. i keep going to junk yards and of course all the LS models i find are smashed in the front end so no luck there.

The molding is removable, its double sided taped on, so its kinda a PITA to take off and on, but it can be done.

If you contact a collision shop they can usually find you one for fairly cheap.

Sounds like the perfect excuse for an SS front bumper

I could be wrong (as i AM drunk right now...) but I think there IS two Styles, being a removable molding and a NON removable (for 2005) molding.
