Cheers!

Yeah I knew I wanted a dark metallic blue and just picked one off the color chart I liked.
Turned out better than I thought really .

I like the idea of the side skirts on the "wrong" way. Makes it say, "wait a minute, something different with that car" from the side

Having some issues with the rear bumper but hopefully will get it fixed this week. The guys who put it on did a SH!T job, of course. Will probably just try get my money back and spend all weekend making new brackets and mounts for it.

They decided to use pop rivets all over the place for it and Im heading down to freak at them later.

Sorry for the outburst... pretty livid at the minute!

P.S. -> Il get another pic of the front and put it up there too...

Ouch... pop rivets Tell them there is no excuse for that crap. A good mechanic can attatch body parts with OUT rivets. Good luck bro, keep us posted

P.S. it still looks great in the pics

Yeah, It looked all good when I picked it up and he said he used "anchors" to hold it on etc etc. I dont even know if I could trust these guys now. I have a friend who is pretty handy and he said we could just build the mounts and things this weekend but gona look for some blood!

Basically last nite turned on to my street and I heard a scraping... No bump or anything on the street all smooth tarmac, then saw the bumper was hanging off! Luckily no cracks but going to go kick some ass!!!

If Im not back by tomorrow... im probably in Jail...

That is a giant load of steaming hot crap...you had better get some money back or something. No doubt the paint on the bottom of the bumper has been scraped off. At least make them redo that part.

Front Bumper

Here is the pics of the front bumper of the car. Something different between yours and mine bluebimmer

I thought it looked a little more aggressive and was going to put black mesh in so cant see the radiator thru the gaps...

I was gona pick up some wire mesh from Home Depot / Lowes, can of spray paint and probably some clips and silicone to fix it in.

About $35 I think I priced it all at. They have all different sizes (of holes in mesh) either on a roll or as 3 x 3 sheets. Its easy stuff to work with and plenty of options.

Then cut it to size, with some over lap, spray it black and stick it in
