He says the rimzzz were on the car when he bought it..

I just want to know why so much money in the turbo getup (biggish turbo, external gate, etc.) and still running the AFM??

its just an overlay, you put there's over your stock bumper, cut 2 holes into your bumper for the scoops to be functional, and holes to keep it mounted in place. IE not a replacement for your bumper

The Racing Beat 1 nose is a lay over piece, but isn't the style 2 nose a full replacement bumper? I was very close to ordering the type 2 before I got my Bomex, but too many people have them.

yes, type II is a full bumper replacement. I considered it as well but came to the same conclusion as you.

I like the looks of it better then the stock one.

I have the Wisdom front bumper. Its not really my style but i would still run it. The sucky part is that theres only a couple of miatas out here that buy **** for there car (the others ones are just bone stock) and all of them have the wisdom bumper. Thats why i wont put it on.
