Hi All,

I am the new owner of a 2016 Q50 3.0t on Black Obsidian. Unfortunately, this vehicle has been in a fender bender, as result both bumper covers are cracked, and the grill is broken.
I wondering what type of parts should I use for repair, stock CAPA vs EAU ROUGE kit from e-bay.
Any constructive suggestions will be welcome!
Thanks much!

What is CAPA? This is not a question for us to answer. You either want OEM bumper covers/grill or you want a body kit. If you want a body kit, then yes, now's the time to do it. There are a few body kit replacement front bumper covers. Duraflex makes one and the EAU Rouge you mentioned. I don't know of any body kit rear bumper cover complete replacements other than the ER. Most rear body kits are add-on pieces.

Personally, I love the OEM Sport front end. I have Duraflex sides and rear and Duraflex makes a front bumper cover replacement but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I did not want to give up that gorgeous OEM front!

Do keep in mind that most of these parts are fiberglass which is a big big pain to work with. When I was going around to different shops with my FG pieces, after hearing all the grumblings and complaints about FG, I was either quoted astro prices and/or turned down completely and/or told that it isn't going to come out perfect.

Good luck.

This would be a great opportunity to purchase a 2018 + sport bumper if you like that style.

Thanks much for your reply. I was confused regarding practical options to replace both bumper covers, while keeping the expense in check. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to source a direct match Aftermarket front bumper cover from AutoFit, I have ordered an OEM cover for premium package 62022-4HC0H at a local performance shop in Phoenix. CAPA certification refers to higher quality Aftermarket part. Meanwhile, I have figured out the lower grill is not matching a Sport type cover, so I have to drop the idea of sport look for now, and also keep the driver assist controller protected. Anyway, I am still chasing after numerous parts: the main grill (on order on ebay), both signal lights, R fog light, L tail light, 4 rear parking sensors, along the missing SD navigation memory card.
So I am in the process of "abusing" my Amex card with more transactions till my new vehicle will be ready to be back on the road.
Cheers!
