    I like it, plus you get to have those newer front lights which I think make the RX-7 look a lot better.

    Yes, good cooling is essential, especially with my FMIC. The roundedness is what I like about it, it suits the lines of the Rex better. My current one is nice and rounded, I'd love to get another one but they are hard to come by.

    That mings :(

    Take it some place that does plastic welding they could make yours good as new if you wanted.

    I thought once Fibre glass is shagged its shagged

    Much like you can patch holes in boats and car bodys i imagine you can patch that bumper back up be it Glass Fibre or Plastic :)

    Mmmm... Not so keen on the slits in the middle. IMO, it looks like something fell off...

    without seeing pics of a similar example painted and fitted to a car i'd find it hard to give an honest opinion.

    It might be a little pricy but u could go to somewhere that makes fibre glass products and get them to make you one to how you want it, even your old bumper if you wished

    I think its an improvement on the original bumper...then again I prefer more subtle styling.
