Ok guys, from your experience, I need to change out some of the cracked and broken plastic pieces (1 tailfin and 1 front side piece). Can you give me a recommendation on getting these in either fiberglass or the ABS plastic ones??? And how hard is installation of these pieces?? I know I will have to have them painted to match the car. Thanks for the info.

Do a search for it. There are a lot of posts around about those parts.

Thanks for the info. I saw those on Ebay and was wondering which was better, the fiberglass or the ABS plastic ones. Also before I ordered these, I was asking anyone how difficult it will be to change these pieces out.

On one of the bars near the top of the page there's a search button. Those parts are called fin extensions or I think bumper fillers. They're soft so that if someone hits the bumper and it gets pushed in it won't break them or do any damage to the car. Some of the posts say how to get them off. They're usually screwed on from behind.

I don't think it really matters, their both strong and will last longer than the stock ones. their a pain in the ass to install, in the back you have to take off the bumper and taillights, in the front you don't have to take anything off but its still a pain.

Oh, and the guy on ebay really raised his prices $275+$30 shipping.
