MS black rear bumper installed (pics)

Received a Mazdaspeed rear bumper today from Rosenthal Mazda. Shipping to Texas took 9 days. The install time was 2 hours with the help of my roommate. Hardest part was trimming the stock plastic. Here's some pictures (sorry about the dark pictures, ran out of daylight.)
I've received the MS sides but will do those this weekend. Adding a carbon fiber ks-auto lip to the front in about 2 weeks.

*edit*
(stock exhaust trim pieces have already been sold!)


MAZDASPEED INSTRUCTIONS HERE.
(thanks to Rosenthal Mazda for scanning them in)

Your larger tipped aftermarket exhaust complements the bumper. It would look goofy with the stock exhaust!!

It's the Borla exhaust. Saw a picture of the MS rear with the stock exhaust and it looked pretty "wimpy".

Sportec Design makes the stock air dam in CF

BTW Omicron... Blitz makes a black (rubber?) lip that can be attached to the bottom of another. Blitz has it on the bottom of the front of the MS kit in Hyper REV. I was thinking that it might be the last thing you need to even up the look since your MS sides are longer than the appearance package air dam... Just a thought.
