Have some GGP rep love man! Like the JDM rear plus the rar lip you have on! Now you just need to lower it and get side skirts and front lip to complete the look...and then some wheels....lol!

The JDM Bumper is really the design of this car...
The USDM Bumper is made to pass the safty............
It really not belong to this car

lower your car and make it look even better =]

oh please lol. JDM bumper is made because Japan has smaller roads and mostly cities. so the bumper is a tad shorter to save space!

USDM bumpers was made because America likes to be different than the rest of the world, like instead of using 24hr time they like 12hr times and instead of drinking age of 18 they want it 21. see?

DEF...NO
Altezza came out in 1998 or 1999...
Toyota just decided to put it into Lexus in 2000 and make IS200/300 and wanna use this to play is BMW 3, M.B. C etc.
then.....the O.G. design with those shorter bumper could not pass the U.S. safty law. AND U.S.A. require side marker....then they make it up (the USDM Bumper) to pass all this requirement.

Thanks for all the kind words guys! All rep will be returned.

BTW - Nigel is right on two counts:
1) The car looks much better with the original/short bumper, cleans the lines a bit
2) The US IS has a longer bumper to comply with DOT safety sh!t only

I def need to do the front and sides...saving my pennies...
Also saving up for a set of coil-overs... :)

BTW, what you did to the exhaust?
It sits perfect =]

Loving the rear - thanks a gain Nigel!
The exhaust is actually the stock USDM cat back, it sits just right under the JDM bumper and with the header in front it sounds pretty good too :cool:
