This front bumper was produced especially for upgrading GT-Rs to the DBA-R35 front end. It is cross compatible and will fit on every year R35 GT-R (before and after minor change). The shape has been modified subtly to allow the direct fitting of the front diffuser of the earlier model CBA-R35 (up to 2011 US model year) GT-Rs. This bumper will accept the OEM Nissan diffuser or any aftermarket diffuser designed for all CBA-R35 GT-Rs.
The bumper will attach to every model year R35 GT-R both old and new (both CBA and DBA 2012+ versions). As such, this also allows new GT-R owners to attach any of the popular aftermarket front diffusers to their DBA-R35s.
The bumper is produced by hand laid fiberglass in the USA and comes in a matte black black finish.
NOTE for all CBA-R35 owners (All R35 GT-Rs up to 2012 model year): The Nissan OEM LED driving lights will be necessary to complete this conversion.
For all DBA-R35 owners (All R35 GT-Rs 2012 model year and newer): You may swap your factory Nissan mesh grills, upper grill and LED driving lights into this bumper so that other parts need not be purchased. —-
Optional Parts and Installation Notes for brand_RR Cross Compatibility Version Bumper:
** For installation on DBA-R35s (2012+ US Spec GT-Rs) The stock hardware and grills from the stock bumper may be installed with our bumper and no additional parts should be needed for installation.
*** For installation on CBA-R35s (MY2008-2010 JDM Spec cars and 2009-2011 US Spec GT-Rs)
A. You will need a DBA-R35 grill.
B. The brackets for the side winkers detach from your old bumper and swap on to the new bumper.
C. The front tow hook cover will fit and can be taken from your previous bumper
D. If you order the LED DRL version of the bumper, you will need to additionally purchase the Nissan OEM LED DRLs.
E. To keep a completely OEM appearance we suggest using the OEM Nissan mesh grills from the DBA-R35.
F. Your body shop will need to arrange for wiring in the LEDs if you choose the LED model. Wiring is pre-built into DBA-R35s but if you have a CBA-R35 you will need to make your own wiring much like installing a set of fog lights in any car.
G. The GT-R front emblem can be used from earlier model GT-Rs without any problem.
H. The Oil Cooler duct is very slightly different between the older and newer GT-Rs. The bumper will fit while keeping the old oil cooler duct with a very minimal gap found behind the bumper. The gap is not easily seen. If you want a 100% OEM mate up fitment between the oil cooler duct and the bumper we provide a DBA 2012 OEM Nissan spec oil cooler duct. Please note that our vision for the bumper is to use only OEM Nissan grills, oil cooler duct and hardware. If using all Nissan OEM parts, we are very confident in the finished result.
