The parts you say we need for front bumper install are:

51117895416 Left

the Op lists the same parts as being needed from REALOEM, so I am assuming the parts you say are not necessary are the air ducts? I kind of want to do this correct one time, I am OCD and not worried about the costs.
Depending on your car model and year, yes you will need those 2 parts. They are the support brackets of the non-facelifted sedan (don't know about coupe) models. My facelifted sedan required those parts.

If you are OCD, you will also want the brake ducts for the clean look.

Yea, me too. At first I thought I didn't want it, it costing like 95$ and all, but after I saw the hole, and saw that the fog area would basically be completely exposed, I thought it was both safef and more aesthetically pleasing. I didn't like the idea of water from puddles or something just pouring into that area.

PS. does anybody know what type of screw goes into this highlighted area? This screw holds the bumper, upper fender, and lower covers together. It's impossible to use a bolt/nut combo because once you have the bumper on, you can't access the inside. It's also not the same rivets and screws as the other holes because I've tried and they just don't fit...

#7. The 3 screws at the top of that fender liner piece are all the same.

Huh...I tried that screw and it just fell out. The difference is the other 2 holes had that silver clip piece #10 on the bottom cover to screw onto. This clip is not present on the last hole..

You might need to transfer the little metal clip (#10) from your old cover to the new one. My cover didn't come with any of the clips, had to transfer both over.

So I picked up my car today and am sooo impressed! My body man confirmed that these Umnitza bumpers are top quality. He says of all the aftermarket bumps he has dealt with this is one of the best!

Total price less than $1000

Included in total:

-bumper, hid fogs, brake vents, shipping, prep, paint, install, wire fogs, and also clean up rust spots!
