    So, this will probably go over like a wet fart in church, but I'm curious to the varying opinions.

    What do you guys think of the Roush bumper for my Cobra instead of the factory OEM bumper?

    England has not been good to my OEM Cobra bumper and I'm looking to respray the car and replace some body pieces when I return to the states. Also, I think it's more aggressive and I like how it's closer to the road surface, because I was to run a splitter and full under tray on the car. I will have to extend the side skirts to match as well.

    Personally I love the roush stage 3 and dont really like the terminator bumper all that much. The only place I believe a terminator bumper belongs is on a terminator and that's maybe half the time. If I had a termie I would try to get a 99 01 bumper and in the event I couldn't find one I would go with the roush which is my plan if I come across a bab new edge gt

    I really like the Roush bumper cover. But you will need to do something to the side skirts to make it look right.

    But then again there is something to be said for a Cobra bumper on a Cobra! LOL

    Though my vote is still the Roush. It would also seem that is your vote as well. If it is what you want then go for it!

    If you do the Roush front then the side exhaust is a must IMO. Like peanut butter and jelly.

    I do like the Roush bumper a lot for the new edge, however I'm afraid nobody will believe it's a real termi after that.

    Of course you are right, it's your car so you can do whatever you feel is good. However I would get tired of having to explain people it really IS a terminator.

    BAB = Bright Atlantic Blue (98-00)

    If you had a boring colour termi I'd say change it up. Since its a screaming yellow I'd say keep the body stock... In yellow I like the termi bumper better.

    I would just have a grin on my face every time someone claimed it wasn't and wanted to race

    As it stands: people ask me if it's real terminator because there is a pony in the grill. L. O. L.

    I would make some custom sideskirts that would lower them to match the Roush bumper. I even toyed with the idea of doing a side exhaust as well. Maybe I could have them fabbed from carbon fiber, then paint all but a section around the exhaust tip, similar to the new Viper.

    Also, I should note the reason I'm thinking of this. During shipping the bumper got cracked at the very bottom center portion. So, it's been repaired and the British painter didn't do a great job. Then, the other day, while trying to get the car on a lift, the wood transition piece broke and ripped the bumper off its mount. So, I will be looking for a new bumper in a year or two.

    I love the stage 3 front but IMO I think it looks better when all painted 1 color without the black parts along the bottom

    It reminds me of what Dodge did to protect the splitters on the new Challengers. There's a guy near my office who drives around with them on and it's repulsive.

    But at the same time, if you did the side exhaust like the Viper...maybe it wouldn't be so bad with the accents.

    Why not just use the Roush side skirts...? That way they will match the front fascia exactly...Stage 3 Motorsports . AM & others still have the Roush pieces last time I looked...

    Thought the car was RHD for a second.
