Wanted to ask how long have you had the ProDTM bumper and is it still holding up well. Was looking at EDs' RS replica bumper but it seems to be having issues with fit and cracking easily.

I have had the DTM bumper for a lil over a year now, when I took it off the car I couldn't find any cracks at all on it. For an aftermarket bumper, the quality is outstanding, you can see the usual scrapes all across the bottom, I thought I might see stress fractures cause of the scraping, but no. I have even had a few things hit it like a roll of carpet that flew off the back of a truck on the highway doing 65 and got stuck in the center part of the grille area, still no cracks.

The fitment might be questionable because of the stupid aftermarket fenders by VIS, next spring when I put the OEM fenders and the DTM bumper, I'll be able to get a better idea about any fitment issues it might have.


On another note, I have something really cool and that's never been done before on OEM headlights - I hope it turns out.

Good to know cuz I want to get a new bumper and I like this one alot. Have a slight mod I would like to do it. Since they probably had most of the DTM bumpers made at the same time I would imagine they would share similar quality. Also the bumper is not too expensive.

Way to throw in a teaser at the end. Funny this cuz imma doing somethin to mine as well ;)
