Hi Andy, welcome, and sorry to hear your bad news.

I would have thought the D40 is too new for people to be making 'aftermarket' bumpers for, but I could well be wrong, hopefully someone will come up with an answer for you.

If it turns out you must go for a Nissan item, let me know and I will be able to arrange you a discount on one.

Ezz.

Hi Andy
Welcome to the site mate :D

Sorry about the bumper. Only consolation is that if they damaged a Navara bumper they must have smashed f*ck out of there own vehicle :wink:

Thanks guys,

ezz : ive been looking everywhere for a rear bumper but all the aftermarket ones are for the older navara, but then i dont really want an after market one as in my eyes they look **** compaired to the standard chrome jobbie on the navara. but i know there just gunna cost a small fortune from nissan. looks like im off to the nissan dealer at the weekend!!

also ive been lookin at the area thats been damaged and the bumper has been pushed back that far its dented the rear quarter and then pushed the rear quarter under the rear light into the rear drop down door so it was catching!!! ( they must have cought it at a proper weird angle) so ive had to lever the rear quarter back so it is correctly alined again to stop it catching. luckly thou the dent is covered by the bumper.

might well have to take you up on the offer of the discount ezz lol!! :D

diesel : i hope to god their car is 3 foot shorter than wot it should be ******* mupets!!! ur not wrong about them being strong, took me nearly 1 hour to move the bumper half an inch to get it away from the bodywork to stop it causein more damage!!! lol

there thats my rant over with hahahah.

cheers andy

Hi again Andy - just noticed you are in Widnes - my home town!

If you contact Phil, the Parts Manager at Widnes Car Centre, tell him you are a friend of mine (Eric) and that I said he would do you a good deal.

If you would rather not do that for any reason, I'll get you one through Chorley Nissan, a dealer I work with almost every day, it'll probably be cheaper than WCC, but would mean a ride up to Chorley - let me know which would suit you best.

Sorry to hear that you didn't get on with WCC - I suppose like most places there are good and bad staff.

If you can Andy, send me an email to [email protected] with your reg and VIN numbers (or at least one of them) and I'll price it up tomorrow - is it just the main stainless steel bit?
