Cool! It's like a mid-generation refresh for the 2IS. Fits well with the 2IS headlights. I don't really like the separate LED DRLs on the 3IS.

Looks way better than I would have ever expected...but I have to ask, it looks like they carved out the old bumper and will be molding the middle grill area and lower lip area on, is that right?

Thank you everyone, I am really excited about this as well. I'm also curious to see whether or not it looks better with our all-in-one headlights as oppose to the separated LED strip.

And by the way, yes it'll be ready for Pursuit and I will be attending of course

As far as which body shop it is at, I will release that information and a price rundown after it is complete. This is just so that someone doesn't walk in to ask for a quote on a project and just happen to end up seeing my car by mistake before I do

That's great. I'd like to see what it comes down to. I'd be willing to make this change at your shop if its within reason.

I wonder how dual LEDs would have looked, but this is sick.

Props.

What they are doing is, cutting around the headlights of my old OEM 2IS bumper and retaining those same brackets while cutting off that same area from the new 3IS bumper. Surprisingly, the 3IS grill is 2 pieces.. it just only looks like 1.... but anyways, they are just molding around the headlights. I hope that kind of answers your questions, I don't have a picture yet to explain this better

center piece and everything below the headlights area will all be the untouched 3IS bumper

This will be my first time at Pursuit but so far its looking like its going to be an awesome turnout. Are a lot of NorCal CL members caravaning down to the pursuit? or are you just one of the few brave ones making that long drive

Nooooo I was looking forward to seeing your ride there, plus K's

RVCAis250, really looking forward to seeing your ride there. I've liked it since the rear F and lip upgrade. Definately something to shoot for.
