Do I need a new bumper?

Hi guys. I went into check my alfa the other day and it seems that they have damaged my bumper lip - not sure if that is the correct term.

I have attached a sample image of the bit that broke off.

The bit that broke off is highlighted in red. Not the whole thing came off - just that black bit under the blue bumper which I assume is called a lip.

I have been trying to search for it on ebay but can't find what the replacement part is called? I think this particular part is separate as I saw the broken plastic piece seemed to have came off cleanly from the bumper with no "blue bits" attached to it ?

Any ideas ?

If I need to replace the whole bumper, I wouldn't bother - would there be a way to remove the other half that is still attached?

That bit is part of the original 'aero kit' option. I broke one side of mine a few years ago and my local Fiat garage managed to get me a pair from Italy. They set me back about 150 but I think they make the front of the car look miles better. So try your local dealer.

Thanks for the reply - is this different from the the ones available with the 2.0l ? I noticed they have that bit too but it is the same color as the bumper ?

The bottom colour coded bit of the bumper is different on the TS is different as it doesn't have the oil cooler intake. But the very bottom lip can be bought and fitted to any gtv, the shouldn't be colour coded.

So for me to buy the correct part, do I just need to find the lip from a salvage of a 3.0l model ?

I take it the car in this listing doesn't have the front aero kit right:

I might just remove the other broken half if I can't find one on ebay

Nope that one doesn't have it. I think a lot of them have been ripped off on kerbs and ramps.
