  • Getting new front bumper and ground effect

    So I decided on getting a new front bumper from ebay for $200 shipped and new front ground effect from RK sport CA-300 for $275 shipped. My old one is pretty rough shape and since I'm getting it painted next year might as well do it right. My old one has the RS ground effects molded on to the bumper and after a few minor collisions has been braking off in a few areas.

    So I ordered the front bumper from Amazon $129 shipped, plus I had a $50 gift card so it was $86 total. Will get the RK ground effect probably January.

        Its just a stock bumper for the front and the ground effect is on Rksports site CA-300, i use to have a rk sport front but it cracked so just got the RS front and had it molded on, but now thats cracked pretty good. The sides and rear are from RK sport. I also run the extended air dam from them for more airflow. Ill post some pics when i get them.

                Got the front bumper, getting the ground effect tomorrow, im going to install the ground effect on the bumper off the car since it should be easier then just install it altogether on the car. Mounting my big intercooler while I have it off, and measuring and cutting intercooler pipping so won't have to after its painted. Ill post pics hopefully this weekend depending on weather conditions.

                    Got it together had only one problem , drilled through the bumper in one spot. They should be able to patch it once I get it painted.

                      It look great! Can't wait to see it painted. It has a clean factory look to it.
                      My front bumper has the left front skirt showing an opening towards the center. I might consider the bumper you chose.
