Looks like cheap plastic with some chrome paint. Conceptually it looks nice and would look even better if chrome paint areas were tied to the exhaust (even though that is clearly more expensive to do).
I predict that this looks like crap in person; may look even worse installed; and will look absolutely horrible after a very little bit of wear and tear.

i think making obe of the chrome areas an exaust exit is possible, the tip doesnt really get that hot. just surround it with some scrap heatshield.

The fit and finish on the ST repica spoilers was a bit off but workable but I'm not so sure of that valence.

Fake dual exhaust. Sorry, that is too cheese ball. Maybe not for some kid trying trying to fix up his '99 Civic!
