The Cobra R front bumper is nice... But on a Cobra R. On any other vehicle they just look weird to me. The front lip is too big, especially for having it on a dd and being lowered your going to scrape everywhere, not mentioning if you hit a curb when you pull up to a parking spot your gonna need a new front bumper. As far as buying a new front clip, DO NOT go with fiberglass. I promise if you do your going to regret it, and have a mess on your hands. The reason I say this is because fiberglass does not flex at all, when it does flex, it cracks or snaps. What your going to want to look for is a duraflex type plastic. In the long run you'll be happy, where as if you went with fiberglass it may last a month or two, but eventually it's going to start cracking. For example, if you have ever taken a front clip off any car you'll notice how much it flexes. You can pretty much twist the damn thing in a spiral and not have problems. Now try doing that with fiberglass. No flex at all, it'll crack, snap and there goes $150 spent on trash. You should definitely look into the 01' Cobra front clips. They look pretty aggressive imo, and is a really great touch to the front end of a NE, in any color.
