Saleen or Cobra R Bumper?

Ok. Some of you may have seen me post about a front bumper, but i still have nothing to show for my questions. I went onto ABCexclusive.com, and found 2 options. Next paycheck, here comes a GT rear bumper and one of the 2 options.

Heres my question...

Cobra R or Saleen? My color matches the Cobra R nicely, but I like the style of the Saleen. Any opinions?

Thanks

if youre buying a saleen bumper, buy a real one from saleen directly. I know its expensive but if you buy fiberglass youll spend just as much prepping and painting and getting it to fit on your car as you would if you just bought the real thing. Ive gone through this... trust me you DO NOT SAVE MONEY BUYING FIBERGLASS!!!

please take my word on this.
