M-Sport Rear Bumper Include or not

Anyone else dislike the rear m-sport bumper? Was going to retrofit to m-sport front, rocker panel/sides, etc. I think the black area is too high on the m-sport rear.
Would it look funny if I just retrofitted everything except the rear?

Nice post pics when you do! I'm just worried the m-sport bumper doesn't line up well with the stock sides and rear bumper so it hangs lower than the rest of the car.

not a fan of the rear bumper either, which is why i went sport. To me the rear bumper makes the rear of the car look a bit too boxy, noticeable when looking from a side angle.

I'm going with the front bumper + side skirts. It's already painted with the "reflector-delete" and ready for install. I just need some time off work to get to the shop.

I'll probably do the rear bumper eventually, but only if someone makes a proper diffuser for it.

Here's a pic for inspiration.

My thoughts exactly. Its inevitable someone comes up with a nice rear diffuser.
