Default Need some opinions

I have a dark blue 2001 2.5rs...i was rallying a field a few weeks ago and hit a huge rock. It messed up my bumper pretty bad and i just got my new one put on. Its black.

i like how it looks but i'm not sure if i want to keep it black or paint it blue, what do you guys think?

It's not pretty but it could be a lot worse. You'll have to be the judge of whether it's worth it or not.

Honestly?

Looks ghetto.

Like you can't afford to fix it properly.

It looks good!

Thats not like having a different colored door or fender. A black bumper isn't a bad thing

I agree about getting it sprayed. It looks funky. Honestly, that body style doesn't look at all good in any sort of two tone combination.

I agree that it isn't quite the same as a different color door or fender, but if I had the means to paint it I would.
