well, a short bit ago my front bumper goth the business by some idiot in a parking lot. scratched, paint chipped, etc. I figure rather than pay for the repaint, might as well go for the replacemtn bumper. What does everyone think of the new Tsunami front bumper?? I like it because its 1) different 2) relatively new on the market so its not played out yet..lol 3) not super flashy...... Any comments welcome, Thanks!!

get one put on...and ask us what we think...I haven't seen any posted pics of an install other than the mfg one. I think it's cool to look at in that pick, but I can't get a feel for the proportions of this bumper without some other views.

good enuff HRW, thanks. I dont know what picture your speaking of, but the one i saw is on this link below:

www.aspecmotorsports.com/00to03fordfocus.htm

check that out and see if it is the same pic that you saw. I like it, I think I may get one put on. Finding a nice rear bumper is going to be hard, being thT I have a sedan. not a big fan of the rear apron offered by wings west.

Cool site...never seen it before. Yep same pic. I'm pretty pick when it comes to body kits in general, so sorry if I came off a little stiff. I'm just not one for "overhange" looking front bumpers. When I first saw the Tsunami....I did check into it.

i totally understand where your coming from man, i appreciate the input. I just don't want to "overdo" it on styling, however, i'd like to replace some things. Im not a fan of most rear bumpers, and if I did'nt think it would look fuuny to have a after-market front bumper with stock rear bumper, i'd keep it..lol It sits high as it is,so to have a low front and that super high ass end would look funny I think. As far as front bumpers go, there are so many to choose, but some are way too flashy or involved for my taste. Its time like these I wish i had the HB..lol Thanks again.

$450.00 for a bumper seems like a lot to me, get the repaired one and hope you don't end up paying 250 for more prep work lol

well at one point i would have also thought that to be a steep price. But hey you'll pay 350 for any wings west front bumper that 3000 people have..lol and after hearing my friend paid $3500 for a full widebody kit for a Celica GTS. $450 for a bumper seems like nothing. Us foci drivers have it good I think..lol

Ever notice how some of those kits have a okay looking front bumper but the rear one look like ass? It looked okay. But I'm not a body-kit type of person.

lol i feel that! Thats why i was thinking bout the front bumper. My front bumper got violated in a parking lot. and instead of paying to have it repainted, i was thinking bout replacing the front. I might just invest my money and get it repainted, new grilles, and clear markers. I just hate the eye sore on the pasgener side of my front. grr
