4th gen center horizontal piece front bumper cut out?

just wanna see what it would look like.. im thinkin bout cutting out the verticle plastic pieces, but wondering if i should cut out the middle horizontal piece as well.. jus a thought..?

I dont think it would look bad as long as you have experience with bondo or some type of apoxy to round the sides where you cut it.

Ahh. I know I've seen them cutout for intercoolers, and it just doesn't look right. Cuz you still have the ends of that line (right under the turn signals) pointing inwards, than its just gonna end. Don't do it, IMO

I agree. This is something I wanted to do at one point too, to clean up the front end a bit. But it just ends up doing the complete opposite.
