I'm not sure why the bumperettes are so maligned? Mine actually accent the color scheme quite well.

Hard to tell what the fit and finish of this product is like.......you need need to get a close up picture of the gaps

I did a euro conversion myself......the bumper beam brackets have to be removed and you loose the tow hook hole
