    Another Cracked 2012 WRX Front Bumper

    Thanks to the wonderful Colorado weather I too have fallen victim to the fragile front bumper on the 2011+ WRX.

    I noticed in some past threads that the option of "plastic welding" was brought up. I was hoping that someone here could give me some insight as to whether or not my bumper is cracked beyond the point of plastic welding. My bumper crack seems to be a bit worse then others so that is why I ask.

    Any advice towards other options would be appreciated. Ideally I would like a permanent fix that is short of replacing the bumper. I do intend to put a lip on afterwards.

    Not exactly, I hit a small median that was hiding in the snow. I was only going about ten mph and driving very very carefully. Ironically this happened after my snow shenanigans in an empty lot. No problems during the shenanigans!

    Last year i cracked mine on a cat. 1 week old and it ripped the bumper up good. Glad to see I'm not the only one.
