alot of people do euro's. diving front and euro rear would look completely stupid. huge dull aluminum bumper in the front and a tiny chrome bumper in the rear.

My old iX had diving boards. Used them to push things out of the way. Also was nice for the occasional 'I need to stand on the bumper so I can body slam someone WWE-style' moment
