Question for YB, DCREPID, and anyone else whose changed a stock bumper.
a few weeks ago i started to knowtice that the push pins were not the right ones holding the facia in place. So i took the trep to the bodyshop. I explained that to him and he said they were right and he would not fix it. (there is a 1 year warrenty on all work) What should have been put in were plastic rivits. I had photo proof and a rivit in hand when i went up today. He quickly said he would change them. So after i kept telling him the facia kept poping out of place and that it maybe warping, he shouted at me that he would not replace it. His excuse was that "it was not a stock bumper"! I showed him other ES pics and he explained that i choose a diffrent style bumper that was "aftermarket". We dropped that subject and went back to why it was not holding on right. A fellow worker of his came over to see what was going on. He knew why it was not holding up. It seems when "I" paid for the ES facia, "they" never ordered the filler (the styrofoam stuff behind the facia)! I told him I was not going to pay for it and we shouted for about 25 minutes untill he got fed up with it and gave in. He is extremly pissed at me because they never installed a 65 dollar part! His fellow worker said this should fix the problem because they will not replace the facia, which i do believe needs to be.
so my question is, do you think im right as the consumer or is he right for being a complete asshole?
