W203 AMG body kits?

I'm looking for an AMG or AMG style body kit for my wagon. Duraflex makes them for coupes and sedans, but apparently not wagons. The rear bumper cover on the wagon is the rub. It looks like everything else is interchangeable. Any ideas?

What material is the kit made from?

If fiberglass, mods should be easy. If urethane mods are still possible with bumper repair welding / filler . https://www.polyvance.com/

The Duraflex is apparently a fiberglass/plastic hybrid of some sort. I have heard it is a pretty good product, but so far have no personal experience with it.

There was / is a oval track race car body company that makes something called " rubber glass". The pitch was it flexes somewhat Vs cracking like fiberglass.

In any event, a call to the body kit maker outlining what you want to do / asking what the material is and how to repair would be the best step.

Do you know what specific areas are different on the wagon bumper?

I haven't been here in quite a while and just saw this. The rear bumper cover for the wagon differs at the top where it has to accommodate the rear door, which is different from the trunk lid on the coupes and sedans. It seems like those actually have more material in them. That being the case, you might theoretically be able to cut out some material to match the wagon's rear door requirements. I'm reluctant to try something like that, having no real experience with body work.
