Finally did the bumper change out. Car is almost complete will post final photos when finished. All parts ran me bumper $308 used 08 none sport grill $190. both fog covers $95 each. lower adaptive cruise grill $150. I’m looking for two fender liners and under tray. I’m wondering if 08-10 fender liners are all the same or do I have to use 08-10 sports? If anyone know please let me know. And will be selling my old 06 sport bumper with grille and sport lip two fog lights h tech springs local pickup tristate for $300 so PM me or email me [email protected]

To note. I got a reconditioned sport bumper. It’s no gap under the headlights like some people when doing the Chang out. Maybe because it’s OEM reconditioned but it fit perfect with no issues at all.

Well done! It appears that both sport and non-sport grilles will fit the same, no? What about the lower grille?

None sport and sport upper grille is the same. I got a used none sport 08 grill. Lower grill adaptive cruise and the fog covers i got brand new from dealer. Couldn’t find any local used. I was wondering is it any difference in 08-10 sport fender liners to none sport 08-10 fender liners. But I ended up ordering the 08-10 sport fender liners anyway. I ordered 06 splash shield. Only piece I need is that little cover for the tow hook.

The tow hook cover is probably a separate item form Infiniti. Did you try infinitipartsonline?

I found it for $38.46 from that site better than dealer, ridiculous for such a small item. oh And I will actually be making the carbon fiber side mirrors myself I ended up ordering 3K twell weave fabric. I will be making it high gloss. So side mirrors, upper grille and the two fog light covers will be real carbon fiber overlay.

Welp everything went well beside the 06 adaptive cruise sensor bracket seems to be 1inch shorter but besides that everything went well! Image


I know to most it’s no big deal but it’s annoying lol Image

When my front end had to be replaced, the new lower grille had that same issue. It seems that the OEM replacement part is not quite accurate. The body shop said they inquired about it before using it and Infiniti told them they are aware, but it does not affect functionality. I reckon that means " yah we know, so what?"

I found the 2008-2010 sport sensor seems to be a different bracket design. Part number 28437-1DV2A. So it’s 3 different sensors 06-07/ 08-10 X/ 08-10 Sport.
