So far 8 are going with GT Bumpers compared to the 4 hat like the idea of smoothed campus bumpers for euro look

I'd keep the campus bumpers. Plus if you get GTT ones, they'll poke out too far without the arch trims and look odd.

Would you paint them if you smooth them off?

Here is a couple of variations i have just photoshopped for smooth front bumper (image off google)

Standard


Smooth (1) - Grill cut out


Smooth (2) - small grill in bumper


Smooth (3) - small/bigger cutout


Personally i like number (1) after editing but i think 2&3 will look better once intercooler/rad is sitting behind bumper

Post comments below, all opinons welcone!

I think the first edited one is the best, it  would look cool with a mahoosive front mount sitting behind it!
 Some look ace and pretty mean with a little pipework showing either side of it too 8)
