OCTANE FRONT BUMPER!!!

TODAY TODAY I JUST RECIVIED MY OCTANCE FRONT BUMPER FOR OUR 2001 CIVIC. I DID A SEARCH OUT THERE AND THERE SEEMS TO BE MIX OPIONS ABOUT THIS BODY STYLE. PEOPLE THINK IT IS TOO AGGRESSIVE BUT I THINK THAT THIS IS A TASTFUL BUMPER MADE BY VIS RACING. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW, RIGHT. I WAS JUST WONDERING TO ANYONE WHO HAD THE FRONT BUMPER IF THERE WAS ANY PROBLEMS INSTALLING IT, AND IF THEY COULD GIVE ME ANY ADVICE ON IT, THANKS. PEACE!

yea i got the Octane front bumper......... i love it........ my friends love it.......
even my mom loves it.........

But i am dis-satified with Vis-Racing....... the buper is fiberglass...... so there
will always be sum deformities. From little ones to big ones..... Normally
people get fiberglass parts fitted into their car so it looks right......

Well mines is a little warped..... as much as i try to get it to fit properly it just doesn't.
I have like a noticeable mis-fit on the edges...... but it's ok.... I like my bumper.
But I'm gettin new bodykit for SHOW purposes

So good luck with ur Octane man....... ur gonna catch alot of eyes on the streets with
it on ur car...... so SMILE

Fiberglass just doesn't work in the real world. If I had a fiberglass front it would have shattered like 3 times so far. Since I have a soft plastic front it just gets scratched. for soft plastics. for fiberglass.

The kit looks sweet, especially the front end, but fiberglass breaks easy, is hard to paint and generally sucks.
