I recently removed the rear bumper cover on my 4.2L Spyder to find that the plastic reinforcement located on the inside of the bumper cover were cracked causing the exhaust tip to be loose (part # 470 802 320 CGRU). See photo attached. The reinforcement is pop riveted to the cover and are to what the exhaust tips are bolted. The cracked one is the passenger side. To my dismay, I have discovered that Audi no longer sells the plastic part separate from the bumper cover, meaning that they want me to buy and paint a complete bumper cover for about $1500 to replace the $50 plastic reinforcement! I have been scouring the internet, worldwide to find the part, or a damaged bumper cover to remove the part I need. So far I have only found after market refurbished covers in the $500-750 range. Does anyone have either a damaged rear bumper cover they want to sell, or have an idea to avoid this outrageous expense.
