New front bumper for the SE-R

Tell me what you guys think. The stock bumper or this other one.
Stock Bumper



Other Bumper

Stock bumper looks more aggressive because the grill looks smaller plus the evil eyelids.

I think the 2nd one looks more aggressive with the bottom of it coming out more and looking like a lip, along with the larger foglights, and larger split front front valance. The eyebrows are killer as well. And it looks like it has "eye black" under the headlights :P

It's hard to differentiate with so many other mods on the front of both cars, but I like the lower one as long as its urethane and not fiberglass.

Does Nismo make anything for the SE-R?

I like the extra detail on the second one better so its kind of an unfair advantage on it. Id have to see it in person or on some more cars. Between these, I like the stock bumper and add the black and red pinstripe detail to the top one personally.

I prefer the second one but it reminds me a whole lot of the Acura TL which is odd.

No, not specifically. I think I like the second bumper as well, only problem is, I think it will be too low to get in my driveway. I scrape the stock every time I back out now. The other one is completely flat, so I'm sure I would ruin it in no time.

Time for a custom metal air splitter. Then each time you scrape, that's just 'sharpening', lol.

Eyelids look good on the Altima I think. Both it and the Z have a bit too much wide eyed look stock

Ok, now that I'm at home and see the pics larger and the detail better, I like the second one much better.

Quincy, the car looks really good. What all (power mods wise) do you have done to it? We need to have a VQ only drag race night at HSV Dragway. Maybe some T-n-T soon.

Yeah, this is actually not my car. I have an SE-R and the car shown is an SE with an SE-R front bumper. I just have a stillen ram intake and fully custom exhaust w/hi flow cat in/on my car. I've got some plans for it though, so I'm gonna be busy with it this fall/winter/ spring.
