I would love an 05 but finding one in great shape will be impossible. I wouldn't mine an '07. I'm gonna wait and see how the new ones are as well.

I think those covers can only really vent air from inside the bumper. I'm not sure if they do much. The one of the driver's side may actually be sucking in air if you have a cold air intake.

Once you get used to it, they're really easy to get in and out. I take my driver's side one off and on all the time. Only takes a second or two to pop on or off.

Except it comes covered by a piece of rubber on the inside, so there's no way it has any function unless you modify it.

Yeah those, the ones in the foglight area, and the ones in front of the wheel wells on the side. Didn't know any of them were functional. To each his own; that's why we have the cars we do.

Found the thread on the rear fender vents being somewhat functional.

^That is kind of neat, but having my life saved by the crumple zone of this car, I would not personally cut holes in the frame.

It looks better from behind
That's the only thing about the narrow bodies I don't like is the bumper, very clean though.

Nice color choice

This. Wheel color seems to be okay but I'm not a fan of that wheel style in general...

Just to try something new.

I just did the math. After all the buying/selling/trading I currently have the GReddy on my car, and a stock exhaust in my garage, and my total money spent is under $100!

So the real question is, why do people just buy one exhaust at full price?!?!?!
