I dunno, I like the steering wheel, it looks cool. Yeah, I wouldn't trust if for the life of me either.

You guys are given me a headache over this. What a cheap repair job!. Ya, it'* an SE bumper. Not OEM. Not rare, just cheap azzed work. The GXP bumper is nearly double the SE one.When I blew the front end of my GXP, they tried to get me to accept "reconditioned". That didn't work out for them (naturally) The OEM cost them $1089. The used headlight they used (Driver Side) really trashes the car'* look further. Either the owner was an idiot to accept either, or he had just liability insurance and went cheap. That Airbag * not a dressing, it'* obviously a different color. Must have went off when the bumper and drivers side headlight were smashed. Car'* only get salvage titles created when an insurance company "totals" a car. I've seen many, many cars go through Dreamakers (who painted my car) with blown airbags in accidents. This car obviously didn't even go through the "Insurance Process". I would guess the Dealer either bought it at an auction and did this, or the previous owner had just Liability Ins. and took it to a shop where he wanted an affordable to him fix.
