Question Ummm, about the Front Spoiler

Ok, I am a total newbie with souping up cars and modifying stuff...
I just want to know what's the difference between a fake front spoiler/bumper.. and a real one?
See I saw a really nice SYMs bumper a couple of days ago... problem is I can't afford it...
Can you guys help me out?

hmmm... what do you mean by 'fake'? You mean aftermarket? Well, it could mean that you're swapping for a better looking bumper or increase the aerodynamics of the car.

Have a Nice Day?

Well, I don't think it's an aftermarket bumper...
What my friend told me is that I can have a "replica" of a bumper that I want... It'll be cheaper...
It's just not... like genuine I suppose...
It's just like saying President's Choice Cola vs. Coca Cola... You know where I am getting at?

One word, "Quality", well, you can put in the material they use to build the bumper too. Most replica bumper use fiberglass, which isn't such a bad thing until you consider that if you get into an accident with that bumper you're toast.

The bumper or maybe you too depending on the impact

As keiho said, replica bumpers are made of fibreglass, they're more vulnerable to cracking.

see, I don't mind the STi one, it's just that it doesn't seem aggressive enough
