Thanks for the reply and feedback. That's a valid observation. I'm not too concerned about it flowing with the side skirts and I don't plan on changing the rear because of the dual exhaust but it is something to consider. + rep for you. :approve:

i say get it. i think it will flow just damn fine. it will make your car look that much better than it does now, and it just gives you an excuse to boost cuz that big front opening to show off an i/c;)

Mayo, I am a big fan of the Carson front. However, I would be concerned though about the fact your sideskirts will be considerably lower than that front. The carson front really is not all that low.

Hmmm, I didn't know that Phillz. That's another thing to consider. Thanks buddy. That deserves some rep. BTW, how's the project coming?

No prob!

The project is coming along nicely. We have done all we can ourselves and have now sent the car Accelerated Performance for a few final touches.

The car should be DONE by April easily...

Many thanks Will. I did see that thread and I agree, I think it looks great without the fogs. Would you mind taking a measurement for me? I want to compare it to my Vizage sides to see if it will look right based on what Phillz said above.

IMO the C-tuned bumper is one the nicest
, meant as unbiased as possible.

i dont think the bumper sits to high, especially with a nice drop. my only complaint of the bumper is how thin and fragile!! the bumper is. what do you need measured?

If you read Phillz' post above, his concern is that my Vizage sides would sit lower than the bumper. I was just looking for a measurement, top to bottom, and compare it to my current set-up (Kaminari front).

As for the construction, I thought I read that Carson fixed that and to be sure they send the "L" brackets for the bottom of the bumper.

Does it also come with the grille? I really like my RMM grille which is also covered it 3M Clearshield.

If you do get the bumper make sure you get all the corners reinforced with fiberglass when you get it painted, that way the corners don't flex and crack the paint.

I have the Carson Tuned front without the fogs and I love it. I would go without the fogs since I think the fogs take away the aggressiveness. Here is a link to my thread:

Gentlemen, thanks so much for the feedback. I looked at both your cars and I must admit, they do look better without the fogs. There is a member who contacted me about selling his. I'll see where that goes.

For the cleanest set up, I would suggest the Carson Front with RMM side skirts. You won't need a rear lip since the side skirts flow well with the stock rear bumper thus helping your dual exhaust setup.
