better yet, which company do you not recommend for Lip Kits? I am trying to see if I can pull off getting a lip kit with my check I got from my accident (depending if the body shop can repair the upper half of the bumper). So, I have been looking around a lot and found some I really like, but am not sure which companies are good or bad. Then, I thought, if I can't get the bumper repaired then I'll just get a new bumper like this (I really like this one and I know I don't have a double exhaust, but can figure something out):




Can anyone help me out with this or send me some links my way? It is going to be a little bit before I get my bumper put on and I want to make sure it's what I want.

Thanks in advance for your help!:p

Tammie, beware of some "copies". Some fit good, others fit worse. When you have a few kits in mind, let me know.

DO NOT let them repair that bumper! That bumper is fV<K'd, a new one is less than $150.

My front and back lips from ABS Dynamics fit really well. They aren't supported like the factory lips, but they probably don't need that much support.

I'm not as fond of the side skirts, but they fit okay.

Pictures later today if I get the damn thing done.

Ok, with a little searching....ok A LOT of searching we finally found a local place with this bumper (Tarmac Series):


I think we can save some money and be able to purchase something on the side if we play our cards right moneywise.

Thanks for your help!:)

hey tammie remember that most aftermarket bumpers will sit a good ammount lower than than the stock one. if you don't go for the whole body kit your car will look funny from the side because the side skirts are so much higher that the new bumper.

Thanks! Didn't know that and I'm glad you brought that up. I do plan on getting a full kit (of course when I have the money to get it) in the near future.

cool. i can't to see what you gonna get. make sure that if you do buy the bumper seperatly that there is a body kit to go with it. so ya don't have to mix and match kits together.

now you need to get dual exhaust for the box.
Actually we may just hide it and put black mesh over the openings.:p
