ok so i finally broke down and got a digi cam last night. i took a pic of my lude from the front just to play, and noticed a discrepancy in the stock bumper cover:

check out the two red circles. see how the passenger side has two extra pieces extending towards the center, and the driver side just cuts off right where the turn signal and the oem fog light mount stop? is this normal on a 4g?

yeah mine has that piece as well... i think its for the jdm fog light installation but im not sure. all 4g ludes have it as far as i know. before my bumper was repainted, it was more blackish inside of there so it didnt stand out as much... now it does.

the two pieces don't just snap off. i'd have to cut them. but i just wanted to see if they served a purpose before i cut them out.

haha... rather not go down that route. what if i rip a bit more than i'm s'posed to... custom front bumper :D.

i'm positive they're not for the oem fog lights. two reasons:
  1. the upper slit is where the turn signals are. the lower slit, is where you would mount the oem fog lights... directly below the turn signals where you see that indentation. the extra pieces i'm talking about are to the right of the turn signal, and to the right of the oem fog light mounts.
  2. if they are for oem fog lights... how come they only show up on the passenger side? :confused:[/list=1]

hey

Mine HAD those also but i cut them out with an ExactO knife so i could mount my Fog's there. It cut out really easy. Just make sure you have a sharp exactO.

hmmmm

those red circles are not where the JDM pr OEM fog lights sit they sit right below those clear lights if you look at the pic you will see a little drilled hole in the bumper, thats where the plastic is cut out for foglights.


hmmm not sure why your grill is different :(

i noticed a while back that my car has that too, but i dont really care because its hard to notice on a black car. on your car it sticks out. id cut it off if i were you.
