OC///M - Looks great! I completely agree with you that with SSII this is the best way to go with the splitters. Are you doing the spoiler too?

Yes, it's about 1/3 the price to buy a US spec bumper and fill the holes than to buy a euro bumper. You can still keep your original. Buying a euro bumper is completely insane.

+1, was my immediate question. Do you have a cheaper source for euro bumpers that i need to know about?

Great look, in any case. Pics or ban!

FWIW: I did not want to fill in any holes. I have had bad experiences in the past with my '08 where the filler (fiberglass & "bondo") developed hairline separations around the edges of the holes.

But I'm insane and you know exactly what I bought and spent...so what's the point in me even posting.

Thanks for your contribution to the forum!
Good night now.
