Anyone know a website where they sell the styrofoam that goes underneath the bumper cover in a NA?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, but I've seen people who don't want to risk damaging their paint if they screw up somehow, and besides, it's a cheap (maybe temporary) fix.

:p

It's part of the energy absorption "package" for lack of a better word. Its like a crumple zone. Its not designed to stop dents, think of it as the same idea as the foam liner inside a helmet. Its there to absorb and disperse energy in a front end collision. In my opinion, its better to have it than not, even though it honestly may not do anything above parking lot speeds.

Mines held on my two pieces of masking tape. I figured it would be more to stop some sort of vibration than absorption in an impact
