I wanna get the m5 bumper and found couple of them. One is a m5 bumper selling for $450 shipped and it's polypropylene and the other is $420 shipped and it's abs material. What u guys think which one is better?
You sure it isn't "polyurethane"? I have never heard of a bumper made out of polypropylene. Like he stated above, I would lean towards the one that flexes more. I am betting it is a polyurethane bumper. BTW what brand is it? I have been eyeing the kit that Extreme Dimensions sells(made of a material that flexes called "duraflex") I just don't know how good it is.
abs is a harder material which does not flex very much, and when it does it tends to have stress fractures and breaks(although still much much much better then fiberglass).. polyurethane is more pliable, go with it if given the option.
