Amen... I've been cursing since I got mine. It's soooo bowed-out and rigid; it's gonna crack when I start mounting the pig. I should've just bitten the bullet and gotten actual RS bumpers and wings west flares. Oh well; too late meow!

Yeah. x2^^^

It's a copy of a copy; fitment is crap.

The closest analogy I can come up with is the Michael Keaton movie "Mulitplicity" where he keeps making clones of himself; but they're dumber and dumber each time... the E.D. version is approaching full-retard. And as we all know: You never go full-retard.

I have a few.

I regret buying my SVT with a JRSC (aka. heatmaker) which blew the engine - its stock now
ebay halo HIDs - got proper Mach's now
buying my first set of wheels brand new, cost way too much - shoulda bought off the forums used
steel 15x10" Diamond Racing wheels, were too heavy - should have gone aluminum right away

i almost regret pulling everything but the dash, radio, and drivers seat from the car. but with racing seats on the way, i think that will ease the regret

If you read the ED thread, I made that very clear when they first started development. I made a huge list of issues that the bumper had before they even began making the replica. They didnt fix any of them lol.
