i've noticed recently the people participating in group buys for the EVO III front bumper. this bumper has caught my eye, and was wondering if anyone knew of any links on where i could obtain one of these?

and what kind of modifications that are required for this bumper as well..

thanks!

my bumper is the Aussie evoIII. the one that CS sells is from New Zealand. its a bit more snub nosed. yes the protege stuff fits it you do some modification. do you guys know how to weld of have a welder friend? if so i would be willing to come down and help you make the protege bumper fit.

i hope denis doesn't get pissed for me using his pics.
see how his drops off really fast?


and mine doesn't


in the picture above i just have them removed. i have pulled my bottel cause there was a hole in in and the nozzles had over spray on them from when the car was repainted before i owned it.

The one thing I'd do to your car if I were you nueman... paint the door handles to match the body. no need to shave and all that other nonsense... just make them blend so there's not that one spot that seems out of place. :D

No, Paint door handles mirrors and the black trim around the windows. I did that on my car and it looks alot better.

You also have a dark colored car, that will blend better than it would on his red car. :wink:

yeah just the door handles. if i do the trim it will stick out to much incontrast to my dark windows.

CS is the best place to get one. it will be the cheapest shipping.

i compared the two kits between neu's scort and the cs protoge.
the protoge one seems a bit more bland than the escort one. but i think that might be because of the headlights and the protoge used.

overall, is there really a difference between the two kits other than mounting modification?

The GB through Cuban has been closed for a few weeks now we are all patiently awaiting our fresh new fascia!

DeathSlinger: the Newstyle kit is the one we are all getting shipped from Australia, it will cost waaaaay too much for it to be worthwhile for one person. (I was quoted a total of about $700 to have it shipped to my home in CA) The CS one is just not quite so long from nose to fender as the NS one. The Lasermod one is also obviously from Australia, so shipping is going ot be equally brutal. Hope something works out for you.
