Large park-bench bumpers were optional on Australia and Japan-market B310s. As usual, North America required the large bumpers while other countries got a choice, including still-boxy but lighter bumpers and simple full-chrome versions.


One-piece VS three-piece Bumpers

One-piece bumper: steel stamping, chrome plated
