    RaiderFab and Mazdaspeeds.org is proud to offer a bumper fitment solution without the need of those ridiculous rubber bands that stretch and fail for first generation Mazdaspeed 3's (2007-2009)!

    2010-2013 (GenPu) MS3? go here for information on your Fenderwell solution:

    About the latches:
    Only 1 latch will be needed for the fenderwell kit per side. If the area is popping off under the headlights as well, you will want to order a pair of full latch kits as well, which will be in the link sent when you order. You can even order our fenderwell kit first, then if needed after, order the front latch later.

    The goal is to go from the bumper falling off, to this:

    The how-to will be updated to reflect the final design as needed, but overall, it is pretty similar to the prototype.

    UPDATE 5/14/2017: And now, ordering is even easier! RaiderFab is partnering with www.quik-latch.com for DIRECT ORDERING! They have taken in RaiderFab hardware, so you can order it all from them! All MSO members need to do is use promo code RAIDERFAB at checkout for 30% discount, good throughout the website, if you need to order a full kit for the headlight area.

    Hmm - my bumper is only coming out under the headlight (both sides). Back portion is completely fine but I'm in either way

    Well if back is fine, order just the one for the front like I did in my how-to. That's my tip.

    Well you will need to get the latches as well, but those are a steal. Bumper fix for about $75 is 1/2 the cost I planned for, so I am thrilled to help so many who need em, plus rubber bands are stupid.

    Woof, yeah. My driver side corner pops out from time to time, so I grabbed a set of the bands since they were only $10 on Amazon...didn't realize how far they'd protrude from the bumper until I had them in hand to really see the dimensons. Needless to say, they're still hanging out in the toolbox and my bumper remains undrilled.

    If mine was in worse shape than it is, I would be alllll over this deal at such a good price point for a much more attractive and effective fix. Luckily, the corner only pops out if I bottom out the front end hard enough to re-dislodge it (hate my driveway), and then sticks tightly enough in place on its own when I push it back in...I think only the very last tab broke and so it isn't a huge issue right now. Will probably be in on a future buy once the problem gets worse, though, or if the passenger side also goes bad.

    Hopefully I will get the mounts in at the beginning to mid next week. I will test them out on my car to make sure we are all good and then I will send them off to Raider to add all the other bits to them and ship them to where its all going.

    Just trying to give you all a timeline on how these things are going.

    Checked tracking, I will have the latch pins today, then shipping a pair up to @Maisonvi tomorrow.

    Update: all latch posts are here!
    Sale/Ship date of 6/27 is planned.

    as @Raider said, I'll be working on the Pu solution soon. I ordered the parts needed today. Once they arrive I'll start laying out a plan. I have a couple of ideas I'm going to try before posting much about it.
