    d3 bumper

    Just wondering if anyone has bought and installed the ATS bumper made by the d3 group. The pictures from d3 look great, just wondering if anyone had any before/after pics or other impressions about the bumper. Also, I am on the east coast so I have no idea how to check it out less buying a plane ticket.

    look on their facebook page. They have an updated picture of it. I'd rock it, but, it's a bit expensive.

    .... and you'd have to get it painted.

    Never heard of anyone buying it but it looks awesome. Not sure how it would look without the whole kit but I'd like to see it.

    Yeah the only thing holding me back are the side skirts. From certain angles it really looks like they stick out. Would like to see only the bumper too.

    my issue with that bumper is you're paying a LOT of coin for something that really doesn't look any different besides the brake ducts...and you have to get it painted to boot...

    i went to teir shop a few times and im pretty interested in getting the kit. its pricey allright. the main thing holding me from pulling the trigger is that they are so far refusing to modify my standard DRL to make it run only the bumper LEDs (which they still dont have, they do a mesh in that area).

    The price was listed on D3's website. I think it was $1,100 and like $800 for the side skirts. The side air diffusers were extra.

    I like the bumper. But I like the DRLs more. They tie the front end together. If they would incorporate the stock DRLs then game on. Until then, front lip kit for me. Hopefully it's released after sema.

    Good point. Dang, my quest to get rid of those ugly plastic brake duct inserts continues...
