Sorry. Allow me to correct myself. M3 bumpers on non-M's are considered rice IMO. Not that it doesn't look nice; that's just my opinion.

Well, I think the prefacelift bumpers are horrendous. I'm living with my facelift by just adding a lip spoiler from ebay on the bottom. No need in spending $700 for the same thing everyone else gets. Mine with be $99 and unpainted.

Agree. Most of the time i find M3 bumpers on non-ms kinda ricey. Its like a body kit.

Mtech bumpers are the way to go on a non-m.

Not sure if I'd call an M3 rep bumper rice but its close. They do look a little weird. The bulge along the edges looks bad.

Rice


yup m3 bumpers look like there meant to be for wider fenders. M3 bumpers look half decent on prefaces and awful on facelifts

It's a bit better, but not by much.


Also, that Lambo look-alike definitely wasn't half-a$$ed. He made it fit about as good as it could. Still rice.

Agreed... but look at those "fog lights"... and breaking of the body lines... bumpers just don't belong IMO...

No matter how much money you spend on paint or "rare/unique" body parts, in my book rice is still... RICE.

True that!... What surprised me the most, was to see it at Cars and Coffee!... Not a lot of Hondas show up to that event around here.
