    I've officially decided to keep the Beast for a few more years. So now I'm in the market for a refresh front bumper either painted or not. My first choice would be the one built by Unplugged Performance. Second would be the one by TSportline. Having a Pearl White P85D it would be nice if it was already painted that color, and of course hopefully match well. But not necessary as I have local shops ready to paint. I've heard of many people doing these to either Leases or cars they purchased and instead of putting the stock back on they just took the hit and traded or sold with the Refresh. I've heard from Tesla Technicians that it's not too hard to remove and install these bumpers. One tech said he can remove in 20 minutes or so. And install takes a bit longer. I thought I'd give this a shot first as it could possibly work well for both of us. So, if you or someone you know have one that's in good condition feel free to PM me to work out the logistics. Thanks...

    At this point I'm mostly interested in the Unplugged Performance Refresh kit. However, I will consider others if the price is right. :cool:

    If you need a quick rundown of a bumper refresh retrofit, I made this video as a resource:

    I'm considering this upgrade myself. May I ask why you prefer the Unplugged bumper over the Tsportline?

    OEM worked fine for me, though the total cost came out to $900 anyway..

    Yeah, but you are way more handy than I am. No way would I be able to do what you did in that video without guidance from someone else.

    That's why I made the video :) I wanted to help others see what it would entail and pay it forward from everyone before me!

    That's not to say that I don't appreciate the video, because I do. It's great. It just showed me that I couldn't do it alone and would probably need to hire someone to do it.
