Default Front Bumper was killed, replacement?

I'm looking for a new front bumper for my 94. Its been mashed pretty badly in the front, was wondering what you guys thought looked good.

Thanks!

You're looking for an aftermarket replacement? How much do you want to spend?

+1. I have that one and I love it.

The front bumper is one of the parts that I never liked from the start.

I think the base model front bumper on my 99' looks good. Probably be a bitch and a half to make it fit on a NA though.

Didn't someone on m.net do a hybrid bumper where he cut the lower half of a NB bumper off and bonded it to his NA bumper? I seem to remember it looking pretty good, but completely forgot about it until now.

I like those two. I want something that is more intercooler friendly that is for sure, but I don't want ridiculous. I also don't want to spend a ton. It doesn't really make the car go faster so I don't want to invest too much in it.

How much do you want for the RB 1? I kind of like that one... What color is it?

About $500, they sell them in the UK but are made in Germany.
