Ok someone drove my car into a snow bank, so hes paying for a new bumper. I am probably going to get the Sport Bumper as an upgrade which would about complete my sport upgrade. anyways.. so i checked out the list of body kits most are for the hatchback and the sedan ones are pretty out there. in case I am missing something. I would like you guys to give some input into a bumper replacement.. not just front lips etc.. something nice and classy and not too out there.. the new autoexe one for the hatch looks good something like that

thanks

if your gonna do body kit, consider if your car is dropped. because it'll scrape a lot. actually even w/o drop i bet some front bumpers will still scrape

Get the GT/S model front, looks way better.

Are you sure you need the different supports for the GT bumper? I was told it was a direct swap. Guess the dealers are really inconsistent with their information.

well depending on what you are talking about, if 04-06 it is a direct swap. I have a 05 and it would not be an exact swap with the 07. I have already ordered my bumper and would be picking it up in TO when I go there to get stuff done. Painting to be done first week Feb. Will post pics after just for the fun of it :) Although its nothing special hehe

Are you talking about the front air dam bumper, because I was suggest the s model bumper from 06. I thought it (front air dam) already came painted, arg, I'm getting so many different answers from dealers now days.
