Mugen. Alot of members have the mugen replica and half of them you could never tell were replicas unless they told you they were. You just have to find a company that makes a quality one like vis racing.

Re: Mugen or JDM bumpers

Only pain in the arss is that you have to custom fabricate something that will hold the Fog light and signal lights onto replica Mugen front bumper. In my opinion, if your cars black I'd go for it but doesn't look the greatest in other colors.

Re: Mugen or JDM bumpers

sry to be a noob, but i dont see what the difference between a regular dsm front bumper and a jdm one. if you want to look different, go with mugen, if you like the clean look, go with jdm.

JDM has real side lights that actually light up bright. Not sure what else.

Re: Mugen or JDM bumpers

I believe that the jdm front end doesn't have the run lights on the bumper they are on the fender. The oem have the run lights on the bumper cover.

The side lights that actually light up bright are really rare even on Preludes in Japan. The only difference is the lack of a side marker, but honestly dude just go to a body shop and get the markers shaved. You don't get the omg JDM baller y0 status but its the same thing.

Re: Mugen or JDM bumpers

Jdm - no side marker lights. Instead they have fender side markers that you can install.

on some occasions you may find a bumper with corner TURNING lights. Basically this is the exact same thing that most cadillac deville's have. (a fog light that turns on while you're turning so you can see the road)

USDM - has the typical corner lights


it depends on what you want... if you feel its worth it to buy an entire new front bumper just for the "jdm" look than go for it. but you'll have to install JDM fender lights to meet with most state inspections.

Here's a link for different lip kit combinations. I'll edit this post and add some JDM vs USDM pics if i have time later.
