Hey guys, im changing up the look of my car, and someone local is selling a kerscher rep front bumper for pretty cheap. my question is, do you guys think i could pull it off with unpainted lowers, IF the lower section of the side of the bumper were painted to match the unpainted lowers.
to get an idea, something along the lines of this,

what do you all think?

Not even going to vote because 1.) No, it will not look sweet. Looking at the car from the side, the front bumper will look lower than the rest of the car.
2.) Stick w/ stock [down] (maybe if you pain your lowers)
Conclusion: get the bumper paint and the lowers as well and you will have a nice look.

Looks decent in that picture you put together, but once that thing is on the car, can you say "snowplow"? Why not just get some sideskirts to match it? I see them in the classifieds all the time.

i might do that eventually
does anyone have a picture of one of these with stock lowerers, painted or unpainted, and maybe on stock sport suspension? kinda a tall order, i know...

Personally, I don't like it at all.

I'd go with an OEM S4 front bumper, get matching side skirts (or get lowers painted) and call it a day.

is the kerscher that much lower then the s4 bumper? i could see both looking lower in the front with the unpainted lowers.

idk if you did the measurements, but you would have to paint a decent amount black for it to line up wit the lowers. This brings me to the point why would you want to complicate everything so much and paint the bumper 2 dif colors if you can just paint the lowers and make everything look much cleaner? Btw i have a kerscher front (just bought another one to replace the old) which i love and i bought the skirts. Now i just cant wait for it to get warm and dry to paint and mount[:D]
