yea i was pretty bummed that carsons were discontinued. i loved the shape of their fog-light opening.

i've had a cwest replica for about 3 years now. for one, over time i've began HATING not having fog lights. plus its pretty banged up at this point, and i had to cut the sh*t out of it when i went boost in middle of '08 to fit the intercooler piping. so i'm about ready for a new front. love the cwest sides and rear though, so will probably keep those.

anyone have any pictures from the backside of the bumper with how they hung the foglights or the foglight brackets?

and also, pictures with intercoolers? (SRT's intercooler piping was made to fit the stock bumper with no modifications. should i assume it'll also fit a USDM l-tuned replica??)

AIT's quality is great fitment is about 95% dead on. there is some work that is needed to get them on correctly overall AIT is the deal to get if looking for aftermarket bumpers. if you could find/score a genuine L tuned or genuine anything for that matter get it.

This thread is great, very good infos for those looking for another option since the real L-tuned bumper is so rare.

Digger & redline, go for it... it would be nice to have 3 L-tuned in a future TO meet pic... hehe! Digger, let me know if you still need my "custom car grill" mesh?

The picture of an Asian supermarket behind the car is a good indicator, this is a JDM Neo bumper type.
The main point of this thread is a USDM fitment (with sidemarkers). The picture also shows a license plate cut out. All point to a NEO type bumper.

Not the same.
