you will have to make your own front bumper, that one in the pic was something offered as a dealer installed option in Germany only, likely locally made and supplied. doubt there are any survivors this late in the game. They likely did not sell many either.

I would be happy with a set of Euro or Japaneses bumpers, nice and slim profile and lighter. we get stuck with the idiotic federal bumpers, which have proven to be a big mistake (minor repairs are more costly than with standard bumpers, and those big bumpers cause severe injuries to pedestrians in accidents).

Well today I finished installing everything.i still got the ac compressor off I want to install new orings.i got to put the axles back .and speed sensor .it took a long time connecting everything back . I take my time too . There is a blue plug that has nipples for vacuum lines . They broke off . I just connected them together so they won’t be no vacuum leaks .i need to know how much gear oil does the transmission take because a lot of drained out when I removed the engine . Here is the only pics I took today

the trans holds 4.1 quarts of gear oil. makes sure it is fully topped up or severe damage to the trans will result. I use the front fill plug on the side of the diff housing near the CV axle. make sure it is level, and you get it it completely full.
