Default I got this front end for my 1999 Miata. I need to know what yall think?

Hey guys, I got this front end today from a local in rogersville. I don't really know what its worth, but I gave him 50 dollars for the bumper. The paint is glossy and its in really nice condition, but I don't know whats up with that ugly *** front air damn...

I don't know about the looks, but maybe you guys might like it...

I'll gladly give you the $50 back if you want to get rid of it.

Looks like you got some headlamps too.

Did you have to deal with the fender splash shields to get the new front cover on? I've read that the old ones don't fit with the newer bumper.

Yeah, I was waiting for a response about your headlights Ben, but I never heard from you. Yeah I gave 50 dollars for the Mazdaspeed Front Bumper. I guess that was reasonable cause I got no idea what these things sell for on the aftermarket. (Maybe I ought to go to Antique's Roadshow) and get it appraised...

By the way, the plumbing on the mazdaspeed turbo has to be the easiest i've ether done. Everything just fits in place no second guessing

Cody, if you seriously don't like the air dam, I do like it, and would ****** it up from you. Could buy you a new standard cover and swap.

I've taking a liking to it, but let me see how it looks painted, if I don't like it, i'll probably sell the "Fat and Fuzzy air Dam) for 175 and shipping.
