^ To that end, one of my favorite things to do is humiliate Lotus owners. I routinely beat Elise / Exige cars. Evoras are also usually not a problem. I have much more difficulty with the Evora S model, if driven by a competent driver on good rubber. People really have no idea how good this car truly is.

My goal for this weekend is to get my 8 ready for track duty again. As good as my Miata is, it just isn't the same as the 8. The 8 is in a higher league.

Decided to S2 swap the front end instead. All the mounting brackets should be here in the next few days. Ordered the Spirit R lights.

All bumper brackets and Spirit R headlights are in. I'll take them to the body shop this weekend. It'll probably be a couple months before everything is done, but it's moving along.

Yea I decided to just swap the front to an S2 instead of modifying the bumper. I dropped it all off with the body shop last Saturday. They have a lot of work to do on the car, so I'm not sure when it'll be done.

Body shop guy lost 2 of his helpers, so he's behind. He'll work on finishing it up next month...

I love their other body kits and bumpers, that being said I think this kit is ugly. Love the thought though!

I noticed around the center of the bumber looks like carbon fiber does it come like that so you doesn't have to paint it?

The whole bumper is carbon, but they use a black gel-coat and only expose the carbon around the mouth and fog lights.

Here is another picture of this amazing bumper:


I wish it weren't $1.5k and I would buy it for multiple Rx8 projects! Trying to find someone who can replicate it locally so I don't have to pay for the crazy international shipping. Don't think it's going to be possible. Best face for the Rx8 no doubt about it.
