    I saw a Suzuki aerio sx in the parking lot today, ugly car, but there was something about that front bumper I liked. Here is a quick Photoshop of that front bumper with a mesh grill, and different fog lights on my escort, along with a modified Mazda protégé grill, what do you think of the combination?

    take the fogs out, and make the 4 slots actual holes then it would look better

    my 2 cents

    To me it looks too long. But what does anyone care what I think?

    There is no need to YELL, but anyway, here's a ZX2 w/ that idea.

    still not real fond of it, but it does look much much better on a zx2, maybe with a mesh grill, and mesh in the openings in the bumper, and the hood scoop back some.. i like the side skirts..

    Yup, it makes smaller cars look like carnival rides.

    In my opinion, no dice on either. The first one looks way too bulky, boxy, and just plain bad with that kind of a front bumper. The ZX2 looks incredibly unnatural.

    Nice idea, but it didn't play out too well if you ask me.

    i think its almost there... def. has potential.

    as stated before, if you take the fogs out, and leave the 4 square holes.

    then put two smaller fogs in the mesh area.

    then shorten the whole thing a little bit somehow...

    and i think it would look real good.
    and i think it looks great on that zx2 just the way it is.... sort of reminds me of the front end on the new ford fusion. just the general shape of it... real beefy

    It would take an obscene amount of bondo, but check this out...

    How 'bout a mustang grill, with a little fiber glass on the sides?

    I'd like to give someone credit for the starter pic, but I can't seem to find out who it belongs to.

    :) grill does not look bad i like it, to much orange with the mirrors, and sun screen, the wipers give it a rice flair, looking at that makes me glad i ditched that bent up lx bumper, for the shaved GT lol

    OK OJ. So I reworked it one more time
    using bits of 3 different takes on it.
    Do you want to see the final rendering?
