Default Nose Options

I had a recent mishap that has left me in the market for a nose. I may just use a stock nose but I wanted to see the options that were out there. I dont want anything to outragous but a little more than stock.

Thoughts?

The Racing beat Type II is extremely clean in person.

Yea I have seen them and I like them but they have been around so long. I am also scared of fiberglass.

I would be scared of fiberglass too. I had a friend who had a fiberglass front nose on his Acura and he busted it up so many times he finally took it off and said forget it. I think the Racing Beat Type I looks pretty much stock. Personally I love the looks of the Racing Beat Type II, if I had an NA that's what I'd go with!

I'm in love with all those. I like changing things up, but I'm really really REALLY not a fan of gawdy kits... At all. I just like things to look cool and different. These fit.

Manufactured from hand-laid fiberglass and easily prepped for final painting..."

I'm gonna take a guess and say that probably somewhere very near 100% of aftermarket body panels are going to be fiberglass. The tooling cost to do OEM-style injection-molding is just going to be way too high for the relatively low volume of parts that even someone like RB can move.

there are a lot of options. If I ever felt like spending money on one and I didn't want the pitcrew nose I would get this one from s2 racing:
