That bumper looks beautiful. I remember reading about these being made on one of the G8 forums I browse; really looks as good I was hoping it would.

I'm not big into grounds effects and aftermarket bumpers, etc, but the car looks good! Can't say I'd put those on my car, but I can see them selling quite well

I like the stock better. But this doesn't look bad.

If it had the GXP fog light bezels staying parallel with the other body lines that would be ACE.

I love the inlet, but not a fan of the foglight bezel taking it's own hike up the bumper without any further accents. The actual HSV has complimentary design which builds on top of each element.

I cant please everybody. That pic you just showed cost $2000 + to get it here in the states. Mine cost less than a third of that. The reason there is only one foglight and not 2 is keep cost down and not have to worry about a lot of aftermarket problems with the bottom lights. Thanks for you opinion though.

Understood.

I don't think the two foglights is terrible attractive myself, but the key to the design is the bold definition which lends massive character. The current foglight bezels look more of an afterthought with all due respect.

I've chopped up what I had in mind, more or less taking foglights straight off the GXP with the combination of your hood and modified inlet looks badass.

The small extrusion above the foglights give it polish.

If I were a GT or V6 owner, I would much prefer this front bumper then any other as alternative to the GXP:




Absolutely love your hood and that front inlet if if were made of CF would be epic.

Throw that into production and it'll be a selling product.

No offense at all. I was hired to make this bumper the way it looks. I have a huge following that have already placed their order. So to each there own

Only thing I do not like from the new bumper is the big gap in the middle, other than that I like, both look great to me
