    Things to look out for - are what kind of bumper your buying ie facelift or pre face and make sure you get the correct lights etc If you wanna do any modding may be worthwhile looking for a VXR/XP bumper. Seen a few bumpers on fleabay

    Looks a decent buy, a pity it did'nt have both its keys with it.
    Should be some headroom moneywise even as a cat-C, assuming you can get it all done at the right price. 12k is very low for a 06 so thats a big plus.
    Certainly wish you luck with it matey.
