Re: I need your opinion on this front bumper plz!

The thing is that everyone goes with the oem lip kit....currently I have some mud guards and black side skirts to match the mud guards and this rear black lip...I want to keep the mud guards because it's a different look I might also keep the black side skirts but right now I need a front lip or bumper....I'll post pics of my car in a bit so u guys could see them

Re: I need your opinion on this front bumper plz!

I think since it is your car you should do something that YOU like. I personally would stick to the OEM front lip and lower it roughly 1.5-1.75 inches..throw some fog lights..call it good.. no loud fart can..

Considering ARC isn't around anymore you'll have to find used on eBay and whatnot...

Re: I need your opinion on this front bumper plz!

Alright my plan is to buy some tein coil overs from andys auto sport there about 1000 dollars is that a good price? And then I'm going to install an oem front lip and add a front bumper wind splitter to match with my mud guards this will make my car look pretty beefy :)

Well you can find used TeinSS for $600-700 but if you want new then thats your choice. Not sure how it would look with a front lip and wind splitters. If I were you, I'd get the full OEM lip kit and remove the mud guards.

Re: I need your opinion on this front bumper plz!

I don't advise buying used coil-overs... just saying.


as previously posted - go with what YOU like.

If you plan on keeping the stock flat black rear and side lips - go with a Type-S front lip. OEM front lip or anything else will look odd from a side view. or hell, check these different options out:
