Default Auto C Front Bumper in Urethane? Carbon? Duraflex?

Would you guys be interested in getting something similar to the Auto Couture front bumper in a different composite? Such as Urethane? Duraflex? Full Carbon Fiber? I've added a poll, so please vote if you want to see this happen.

Approximate Price Range:

Duraflex: $299-$399
Carbon Fiber: $599-$699
Urethane: $699+

Price would be determined by the number of people interested. Thanks!

Also, would you prefer the Cross Bar or would you like that to be deleted?

List starts now!

Why would I want a crossbar if Im going with an aftermarket bumper?

Not to mention intercooler..

CF would be dope if enough people wanted it.

Those prices are high, duraflex, ait brand sells it cheaper, and cf/urethane is high than shine kit. Shine sells it cheaper and better fitment. Just my two cents.

Costs will be determined by the amount of individuals interested. I am sure I can get a better price if we have enough interest, for the Duraflex.

As far as Urethane and Carbon Fiber, I don't believe Shine has that composite. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Me personally I'd go poly-urethane. It's more durable plus a lot of people here with slammed or lowered SC's would benefit from it instead of having to worry about repairing their bumper over and over. I'd also leave the cross bar of course.

DITTO^^^^^^^ carbon fiber would be sweet on a black SC though.

I don't mean to change the theme about the front bumper, but it's about the rear bumper. Currently, there's no real nice rear bumper kit for the SC3 & SC4. They're somewhat better looking than OEM rear, but nothing that's fancy to drool about. They're too plain.

On the other hand, there's a few nice rear bumpers/lips for the SC430. I'm wondering if you can make a nice fancy rear bumper/lip for the SC3 & SC4. I'm sure you'll sell lots of it. I'll be the first in line.

Honestly we need a nice mass produced poly-urethane lip for the front of our car. Those would sell like crazy especially for 97-00 fronts. Honda's have lip kits such as Type R, Spoon, & Mugen. Even the MK3 & MK4 has poly kits but the SC's were left out
