    RS Rear Bumper to Eco Swap w/rear lip w/diffuser

    I finally got around to discarding the $hitty RS rear bumper. I sourced a mint Eco for less than $300, rear lip from Korea that came with the integrated diffuser. I painted the diffuser matte black and the lip is painted Granite Black to match the car. Looks amazing in person, as on an RS some form of lip is needed to match the stock body kit dimensions. Just adding a diffuser on a non-RS bumper on an RS car makes the a$$ look out of place. Also, check the pics for the gloss black door pillars and gloss quarter panel covers .

    Nice find. The diffuser alone is about half that price. Did you buy off someone or a company sells for that price?

    I think it looks way better then the rs. I'm sure someone would have traded you though.

    Looks good. How much that lip cost you and where did you get it from?

    I bought the bumper off ebay from a vendor in Detroit shipped Greyhound. The lip was sourced from www.jcsportline.net and I believe I paid about $400 shipped in total (it was $150 for the lip and $250 for shipping). It arrived in 5 days boxed in a crate surrounding the box. Needed to be reprimed, but had that done at the shop.
