Well sorta.

Watch this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz4V7c56lFE&feature=related

See how the snow plugs the place where the fogs / fog grills are? Since its a white car it just looks like there not there..

I never would have thought of this if it wasn't for this video, but shit, that looks pretty good! The first few mins i was watching the video i kept thinking to myself what bumper is that?! Almost like a B6 front end. Took me awhile to figure out what it was.

It actually looks really good imo. Makes me want to break out my old bumper and start messing around..

Wow... That actually does look really good to me... With all that plain area on the bumper, it might look good with some fogs fitted in there to break it up a little bit. If that makes any sense. lol

do you have a front mount? That side mount is gonna get nice and heat soaked.

haha sorry man. perhaps you could cut a hole in the lower valence, or just pop it off and get at the bolts from the back? more work to remove the bumper but might be worth having the look.

If there was a hole in the bottom of the bumper you could use a long extension to get to the allen bolts.

You guys are harsh. I actually like it, but needs something to not make it so bland. Not saying that I would do that myself, but def not as bad as people are making it out to be.

Yeah i don't understand the hate. I think it COULD look good. The bottom valence that you molded to it is all warped and kinda is the first thing i noticed. But i think its a cool idea and can be made to look good.

But on a side note, just in my opinion, it would look a little better if you put some holes in there just big enough for fogs. But cool idea [up]
