I was goofing off at a website .. Car Parts Wholesale (350Z) and see that they have the Front Reinforcement bumper available in Steel in addition to Aluminum. I had no idea you could get it in steel. Seems to me .. that if you slap the Z into something hard enough to require the reinforcement it prob doesn't matter which version you have.

I would think you would be more prone to be injured with a steel reinforcement depending on the speed at impact. The aluminum will give way, allowing the engine compartment to absorb the force of the impact...with steel it seems the vehicle would come to a more abrupt stop. Not good.
