Actually the pics are kind of crappy, but I wanted to again show hustler what he didn't get. The sun was actually already setting and it was getting dark. Ti car is dopplebadgerdrifter's FMII 02SE/AE/MSM/GV hybrid mutt.

We'll see if this will solicit some sort of response involving top shelf punani, aged brie, and an expensive wine collection.

Ugly heavy wheels, ugly headlights, small IC, ugly tupperware package, ugly taillights, and inferior duals. What a piece.




















































drool.

LOL at the wine-n-cheese comment Ben! Worry not though, you probably don't have enough interior chrome to be considered a wine-n-cheeser.

I do <***>rrhheeehheeaallllyy</***> like the AE's sport pkg front bumper treatment with the projector lamps, but at the same time am pending semi-immediate aquisition of a NB2 front skin and MSM lower lip. Have also a pending deal on a MSM headlamp swap, but am waffling on if I want to keep my bright lamps or not. Fritch's lamps always looked kinda dark against his AE. Dopple's got MSM lamps in the top pic, which look graet complimenting his black wheels. Hmm.

MSM junx with TDR splitter:

I think that bumper that's on the AE looks better than any other bumper. Hell no to the MSM bumper, that looks like a body kit that glues to the old bumper.

If you keep the bumper that's on it, I'd keep the lights you have as they look good and match the rest of the car. Not sure it would look any better with black lights. I would debadge it though. Doppleberry's car in the background looks like a miata with an oversize front bumper that was painted without painting the rest of the car. Too wide, too low, and sticks out too much. Ruins the car IMO.

I don't like the MSM lower bumper lip. Looks like the car has a self-righteous grin...

Nice car, but I wouldn't pay a cent more than $7,500.01 for it.

Possible deal of the century there.

Here's Mike's car. The GV bumper is not my personal taste, but I do think it's pretty cool. I think he pulls the look off with the large side skirts complementing. FWIW, pictures like that make me want to figure out HTF I use my camera. Dopple knows how to work the settings to get bad *** pictures and as you can tell from my pics, I just leave that **** on automatic.

Of all the stock NB2 covers (standard, tupperware, MSM) I think the MSM is the best look. They all start out with the standard bumper, but add a different lower lip*. Yes, it sticks on. There is an orange MSM with the TDR splitter locally to me that gives me funny feelings in my pants. The "grin" you speak of Matt is really a function of the NB2 front bumper cover.

*The MSM actually does have a different part number for the front bumper cover. The difference is just pre-drilled mounting points for the stock intercooler. A lot more expensive, but really not a big deal.

If the MSM bumper was like the on in the pic above, but no black lip and that bottom piece was just part of the bumper, not a piece that appears to be glued onit would look ok. But to me adding pieces that are obviously glued on doesn't make a car look any better. IMO anyways. Like side skirts. The little curve thing going on in the actual steel of the car down below the door looks sick. If you backup and follow the body lines they work. Gluing a big piece of plastic below it that sticks out, not so much. Look at the top half of the car. Everything's round and smooth/curvy. Then look at the bottom. Lines, angles, joints, pieces glued to the car. Looks like one crew of engineers designed the top and another crew designed the bottom, and they stuck two halves together and said 'holy ****... get the paint out!'

I blacked my headlights like the MSM. It was a no brainer on a black car.



I've always liked the front end without any extras. the lip is it. I *had* a GV lip for a while, but never installed or painted it.

I like my front the way it is. I wouldn't mind a TDR splitter or something similar though.

Ben, the only addition your car needs is the TDR splitter for men.
