You will officially have the "least busy" rear end of any RX-8. The problem is that everything will look so bulbous. The only angles left will be around your license plate bracket. This could make it look a little like an old Taurus IMO - so think it out before you put a lot of work into making a nice car look bland.

This is what I was looking for. Thank you and that is why I am here. Just wanting to see what you think it might look like. This was just a 5 minute tape job as an idea i am not set on anything yet. oh and i looked an old taurus and I see what you mean. any thoughts on what might look good? I just dont want it to look too busy like some of the aftermarket bumpers out there. I am recently medically retired from the Army so I thought this would be perfect for me to do. Buying a new bumper and just installing would be just to easy and not give me anything do.

I've really been looking at giving my RX-8 the JIC treatment, but with a special touch - paint the black trim to match the paint and buy the best looking muffler I can get ahold of. Maybe CF wrapped? I have a midpipe from a Turbo XS exhaust I haven't installed yet. I think I could have a catalytic conveter welded in and have a shop fab up the rest to my specs. For now, my NG RX-8 looks too OEM to pull off the look, so I'll have to wait for it.

there is no commercially available piece that is why you see all 'custom' solutions above.
