Need bumper opinions

Had a minor fender bender today and I have to replace my front bumper. I am not going thru insurance because it wouldnt be much cheaper and it would raise my rates. Anyway, I am thinkign about stock or this one.

those two little holes make it look ugly to me :-/

If they weren't there I'd say it would look a lot better.

I dunno what stock looks like

Definitely plug those holes w/ lights, and the aftermarket looks fine.

I believe the holes are functional and help with cooling. That bumper is one of the only ones that helps function and not just looks. It is used by a racing team. Anyway, here is what the stock bumper looks like:

If I stay with stock, I am going to get a chin lip for it that I will overlay with carbon fiber to match my wing. the bottom chin, not the canards.

Get the chin lip. I'm not feeling that front bumper. The Evo will look harder with the chin lip.

The only front fascia I like was like the one on the Evo from 2 Fast 2 Furious. It didn't look outrageous.

looks pretty crappy to me, i know you want it to be different and its a great time to take advantage of the ability to get a new one, but are there any others out there, those two little round scoops look like crap on the bottom.....

I don't think the little scoops look too bad on the silver one. maybe just painting the scoops black to kinda accent the spoiler would help some?
