    Rear bumper ideas for my coupe?

    I was planning to just put irmscher rear corner things on my rear bumper and add a spoiler, however I have thought long and hard about it and I am thinking thats too standard. Plus I have now got a duplex remus system, and I don't like the fact that I can see the cross pipe.

    I am thinking about the JDL rear skirt, however it would have to be modified to take a duplex system and Id have it smoothed into the bumper.

    Just wondered if anyone had any other ideas for around £100?

    Could look good. I think I might ask someone to photoshop that to see what it looks like.

    OK my mate photoshopped some pics of the JDL bumper.

    Here it is with my twin pipes and sides smoothed in.




    Here it is with the sides and back recess filled:



    Personally I prefer it without the recess filled. What do you guys think?

    without the recess filled, with twin vxr pipes, and the whole car a tiny bit lower
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Ok you have changed my mind, that looks smart. I would personaly keep the recess as to me filling it makes the bumper look flat & boring. plus you always have the added risk of a line appearing in the paint after as bumpers do flex!
