Should I get the RS Front bumper for my SVT?

So if anyone has checked my other post I had screwed up trying to paint the fog light surrounds black but did not turn out good at all. within about a month I will have a turbo with the FMIC now I kinda like the look of the RS bumper so I need to decide between getting my SVT re painted for around 340 or going with the RS which I think would look good with the intercooler

I just thought about it..with the way the RS bumper flares out would this even work with the SVT Body and just look kinda weird?

you are going to spend more that 340 on the rs bumper + body work + paint... idk ... the rs bumper is nice though. but so is the svt... i'd stick with the svt personally.

Depends...did you want an official RS bumper or the F2 Rs bumper?

The Official RS bumper does flare out on the sides since the car has a bit of a widebody thing going on. And it will also break your wallet pretty good...that is if you can find someone who's selling it.

The F2 RS bumper you can get the standard one and it'll fit fine w/o the sides flaring out.

Either route you take you're gonna be spending well over the cost of just getting your bumper resprayed.

not true the standard one still flares out, i own it and a few others iv seen with the standard front bumper it still flares out, but with a little body it would look fine, great actually especially with a fmic

Well I guess it would be the F2 in that case.. I like the look of the SVT also but I think with the fmic it would look sweet with the RS plus add another personal touch to my car

get the 1998 RS US Replica front bumper from extreme dimensions:

its half the price of a official R/S collection front, but it still looks good. I think i paid about $480 shipped. for an official R/S collection, your looking at about +$1200
