This front bumper was produced especially for upgrading GT-Rs to the DBA-R35 front end. It is cross compatible and will fit on every year R35 GT-R (before and after minor change). The shape has been modified subtly to allow the direct fitting of the front diffuser of the earlier model CBA-R35 (up to 2011 US model year) GT-Rs. This bumper will accept the OEM Nissan diffuser or any aftermarket diffuser designed for all CBA-R35 GT-Rs.
The bumper will attach to every model year R35 GT-R both old and new (both CBA and DBA 2012+ versions). As such, this also allows new GT-R owners to attach any of the popular aftermarket front diffusers to their DBA-R35s.
The bumper is produced by hand laid fiberglass in the USA and comes in a matte black black finish.
- Now any CBA front aero part can be compatible with the 2012-16 DBA GT-R!!!
- Up until this point, no aftermarket aero parts have been able to be fit to the new GT-R; even Mines was forced to build their new demo car without aero upgrades.
- This bumper will fit the 2012-16 DBA-R35 and ’07-11 CBA-R35
- Designed for those ’07-11 GT-R owners that want the new ’12 look, but want to keep their existing front lip spoilers or diffusers.
- For those with 2012 GT-Rs looking to add some of the existing aero parts, this is it!
- Daytime Running Lamps
NOTE for all CBA-R35 owners (All R35 GT-Rs up to 2012 model year): The Nissan OEM LED driving lights will be necessary to complete this conversion.
For all DBA-R35 owners (All R35 GT-Rs 2012 model year and newer): You may swap your factory Nissan mesh grills, upper grill and LED driving lights into this bumper so that other parts need not be purchased. —-
Optional Parts and Installation Notes for brand_RR Cross Compatibility Version Bumper:
** For installation on DBA-R35s (2012+ US Spec GT-Rs) The stock hardware and grills from the stock bumper may be installed with our bumper and no additional parts should be needed for installation.
*** For installation on CBA-R35s (MY2008-2010 JDM Spec cars and 2009-2011 US Spec GT-Rs)
A. You will need a DBA-R35 grill.
B. The brackets for the side winkers detach from your old bumper and swap on to the new bumper.
C. The front tow hook cover will fit and can be taken from your previous bumper
D. If you order the LED DRL version of the bumper, you will need to additionally purchase the Nissan OEM LED DRLs.
E. To keep a completely OEM appearance we suggest using the OEM Nissan mesh grills from the DBA-R35.
F. Your body shop will need to arrange for wiring in the LEDs if you choose the LED model. Wiring is pre-built into DBA-R35s but if you have a CBA-R35 you will need to make your own wiring much like installing a set of fog lights in any car.
G. The GT-R front emblem can be used from earlier model GT-Rs without any problem.
H. The Oil Cooler duct is very slightly different between the older and newer GT-Rs. The bumper will fit while keeping the old oil cooler duct with a very minimal gap found behind the bumper. The gap is not easily seen. If you want a 100% OEM mate up fitment between the oil cooler duct and the bumper we provide a DBA 2012 OEM Nissan spec oil cooler duct. Please note that our vision for the bumper is to use only OEM Nissan grills, oil cooler duct and hardware. If using all Nissan OEM parts, we are very confident in the finished result.
GT-RR Pricing Difference
We do pricing a little differently. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California. This does a few things for you; firstly it creates a built in cost savings, no hidden fees, and less hassles. The best part is we still have a price match guarantee! Click here for more information.
The Bulletproof Automotive website contains many thousands of products purchased in multiple different currencies. All of the prices are entered manually and accurately at the time of entry. Due to the consistently fluctuating international exchange rates, at times prices may not be able to be honored at their original intended rate. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, unfortunately our website is unable to compensate dynamically for what can at times be volatile changes in the cost of items due to currency values fluctuating, changes in prices from suppliers, changes in shipping and import duties, and other factors. Rest assured that any order you place on line will be at zero risk to you in this area. If in the event your order cannot be fulfilled at the original intended website price we will offer you a 100% refund, no questions asked. We will continue to do our best to maintain updated prices and we will always continue to offer our price match guarantees as well to ensure our prices are always the best for you. In short, prices may change without notice. It is always advised to give us a call prior to placing your order online to confirm availability and to confirm current pricing.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only.

We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well.
For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at email@example.com
