SVT. It not only looks better, but I think it's a better deal. The SVT bumper kit comes with an SVT horn and SVT fog lamps. And I don't know how often you use your fog lamps, but the SVT ones are definitely much brighter than the stock ZX3 christmas lights.

you can get the front and rear from b161991sir... jegz, summit. i got mine from a guy a know who works at a dealer... he told me he was able to get a hold of one for me so i took it. b162991sir is the cheapest route you will find.

The SVT rear bumper price hovers around $250-$300 at the most. So the deal would still be the same (around $700 total). And I believe the diffuser on the SVT rear bumper is swappable with the more recent SAP rear bumper diffusers... but don't quote me on that. Someone else may be able to confirm that. Anyway it's up to you.

Well yeah, that's for the whole kit including the rear bumper and skirts...if it's just the bumper you want then you'll have to dish out close to 400 bucks for the f2 front bumper alone (shipped). Of course this isn't taking into consideration how much more it'll be for paint.

keep in mind though that the f2 bumper will need custom fog light brackets to be made and the fog lights will have to be bought seperately.

The rear diffuser is swapable but the SAP diffuser had different mounting points so there'd need to be some extra drilling to put the diffuser on the svt rear.
