Very nice! Ok so we need more details. How much was everything all together? WHere did you get it?

Its gonna make your car stand out so much more now. Must post pics when finished..

EDIT: Im glad to see that its not crazy different then the current bumper. New brake ducts, 2 new splash shields I see and the grills. P.S. Good job on opting to go with fog lamp grills. I cant wait to do this.

Ordered from Greg at GTM Challenge.. I couldn't get any dealer to get me the numbers. Greg ordered everything and i doubt he made much on the deal.

Send him a PM and he'll quote you a price for members.

I think GTM will paint it if requested. I want to match mine to the actual car.

It's the M Sport with all the parts to make the swap on the Sport Line.

Inexcusable for any dealer. It took the guy at my local parts dept 10 secs to look it up on his computer.

Hope there arent alot of rocks in Denver or those foglights are going to get destroyed. M sport is the only way welcome to the dark side.

Getting close...

And FYI.... It takes a different fog light bracket(s) to mount the fog lights.
And a different lower bumper bracket because of the fog lights.

$60 bucks for the 3 parts...

Congrats on the purchase. M sport does look a lot better than the standard bumper.

100% agree...the designers of the std sport front bumper must of had a few too many lunch brewskis when they designed it. It's terrible. It's a whole lot better
In person, but its still hard on the eyes.

I'll probably change the side skirts down the road also...

There isn't enough difference in the rear bumper to change and my goal isn't to
Make the car a M sport model, just change the front bumper to something
I can live with.

I'll post up some completed pics tomorrow.

I prefer the Sportline rear over the m-sport. I ordered a sportline but I want a LTMW m6 front bumper. lol

Yes....they aren't that expensive.. And about 200 bucks to paint...I probably should have done everything all at one time, but I'm good with the ones on the car for now.
