Just get the number, have them punch it, and press order Thy wont find it in their part lists or anything but if you have the number it shouldwork. I had the same issue in Norway. Nobody here had any clue about 99spec parts since only 93-95 where sold in europe (none in norway) but i gave them the number and they ordered it. Worked super. But ofcourse i had to take the risk that the part# was the right one since its not easy to return.

All the parts come from Japan anyway, so its nothing different from getting a 93 spec front really. Just a different number

I just ordered my 99 spec bumper from rx7store, they were very quick on a reply for how long it would take for it to come in. Normally they actually do have them in stock but this time they didn't but rx7store said Mazda was already pressing them and itll only be 4 weeks till I receive it at my door anyway.

I agree with shine as to why they do not need to replicate the 99 bumper. As for stocking it from Mazda and being a 3rd business that does that then that is the way to go, if its not at one shop then you can be lucky and get it at another. I am not sure why people are paying 2500 for a full setup when you can get the front bumper for 550 and then the rebar for another 500-600. As for the lip and lights I would choose not to put the fog lights on and I am going with an ODULA lip rather than the 99 spec.

AS for replicating the new FEED kits than I am all about that for shineauto to do. I know someone was already trying to get shine to do this but shine had to first get some many to buy before pulling the trigger.

Trying to be the devils advocate, what can you offer that a dealer cant?
- Part# are available online
- Full JDM EPC is available

- Dealer is local, so no shipping is needed

Im not trying to be an ***, as i want as many RX-7 vendors as possible to keep the platform alive, but i fail to see why buing them from you would be better than a dealer option, and thats important to why i would consider buying from you?
- Do you have better prices?
- Do you offer "kits" with rebar, lips, ducts and lights? (like Corksport did/does)

You bring up valid points. This is the reason why we're asking for thoughts and feedback. However, keep in mind this thread is more about us asking you guys, "should we look into stocking OEM 99-spec bumpers?" and not a "this is why you should buy 99 spec bumpers from us."

This thread was created simply responding to demand for 99 spec bumpers. I am trying to find out why some are asking us if we offer or plan on making a replica when I feel there is no need to. Obviously, if people were finding the right places to source these, they wouldn't be asking us in the first place.

There are benefits to order through us than through a dealer. I don't know what our pricing is compared to what a dealer can get you one for, so I won't comment on price yet. But I do know I wouldn't consider it if we didn't feel we could be competitive on pricing. I mentioned earlier about combined shipping with our other goods to save further on shipping. If you are not ordering parts from us, then it probably wouldn't make a difference who you ordered from. We're offering to stock bumpers to have readily available to ship. Dealers don't stock the item. Most people here don't know the part numbers. We can make the purchasing experience much more convenient and to some, that is more important than a marginal price difference.


If you are not located in the U.S, it most likely wouldn't be beneficial for you cost-wise to order through us. Our main target market is the U.S and Canada.

At the end of the day, we really don't care where people get their 99 spec bumpers from. From our point of view, the more out there, the more 99-spec and 99-spec Mazdaspeed lips we can potentially sell.

As mentioned earlier, I am not too concerned about stocking the accessories (fog lights, rebar, brake ducts) as those can be installed later at any time and ordered through other vendors. We'll consider it if they drop the ball. We have the purchasing power and space to order 20 bumpers at a time and that's really the only item we care about.

Also, if you know the numbers, it would be helpful to post them here so people can try getting parts from their dealers and we'll see how that works out.

But like you said, you did the leg work by finding the part numbers and convincing dealers it can be ordered and also took the risk of ordering and not sure if the right part will arrive. There's a huge inconvenience factor here, but it is nice for people to know it can be done.

I just text a friend of mine that works at the dealership and no luck with your method...
Maybe North America system doesn't work the same....

I would pay for a OEM bumper as long it's in a reputable store, in stock and ready to ship.
I called corksports in december and their not carrying any of the 99 spec parts anymore, which leaves RX7Store. Right after I got off the phone with corksports, I emailed rx7store and its a min 2 month wait cause their currently out of stock. They also don't normally ship to canada cause of the size (very expensive).

If you (shine) can stock the OEM bumper i'd buy it for sure! I know you said you don't want to stock any accessories, but if you can do one do the turn signals.

I thought that Mazda dealers in the US cannot get 99 spec stuff. I read that Ray Crowe can't get 99 stuff. So if that's the case and Shine could stock and sell OEM 99 spec bumpers, I say go for it!

+1 more person who would buy an OEM 99 spec bumper from you guys. I too found Corksport no longer sells them and RX7store has a long lead time. I'm definitely in the market this spring for one.

Ari at rx7.com should have some. And he would be willing to work out shipping. I bought my under tray from him and he even shipped it USPS when Corksport wouldn't.

But any other available ones , shipping is almost the same as the bumper itself.
CorkSport is very much open and in business. What makes you think they are closed?

No problem, there is just a huge difference between being closed and out of the 99 spec parts game.

I've contacted Corksports and they are indeed open for business. They have transitioned their focus away from Rx7's in general. They do have 1 brand new 99 spec re-bar in stock right now if anyone is looking for one.

We're looking to work with Corksports to see what we can do to get these back in.

I also had my friend contact Mazda Parts Dept. in Japan just as a regular consumer to see what the street price is. They quoted him 86,000 Yen ($750 USD) before sales tax (8% in Japan). This is ONLY for the bumper - nothing else. Rx7store selling these @ $589 a pop, which is a superb price and I would advise anyone who doesn't mind the wait, to order from them. They definitely have some special connection to be able to bring these in from Japan, sell them at a lower retail than in Japan, and still make a healthy profit.

IF U.S dealers could get you these parts, I can't imagine their prices being as competitive as Rx7store's.

No chance at a replica 99 spec bumper without the license plate area? The current ones are not very good quality and something from you guys would be a much better alternative even if not oem level.

What I'd like to see Shine offer is a plateless 99 bumper like Pettit has *but* improve the design as on the discontinued Eurou Japanese brand.

We're going to be bringing these bumpers in at $800 a pop. Doesn't look like Rx7store can get these anymore or am I wrong?

So roughly $700 + $200 shipping.

We should be able to ship these bumpers for $165
