Talking Recommend me a front bumper...please

I have a 2002 Coupe and I was recently hit. The insurance called it a 50/50 so I have to pay to get it fixed . I have been to sport compact only and I have seen some nice looking front bumpers. They look decent in the pictures, but I am afraid that when I buy it, it will look totally different and ugly. So, could someone please recommend me a front bumper and if possible post pics of what it looks like on the car. Thanks!

BTW...I also need to buy a new fender, so I think I am going to buy the Extreme Dimensions F-1 fenders. Erebuni makes some cool shark style fenders also and they come in carbon fiber, but is it really a smart idea to buy carbon fiber fenders ?

if you plan on getting side skirts and a rear bumper, go with the buddy club 2. i think it will look a little out of place though, with such a large front bumper, and no side skirts or rear bumper.

otherwise a mugen style lip.

I'm thinking about going with the ED R34 bumper with the F-1 fenders because they are both the same company, but, the erebuni fenders with the R34 bumper looks good right now. So good, that I am anxious to order right now. But to carbon fiber or not to CF? I was told not to get CF fenders. It's not worth the money because it's like a 1 lb weight difference but it would be unique. Also, what would be better fiberglass or Urethane?

fiberglass: bumper might crack if u scrape it too hard, but its fixable, and its cheaper

Urethane: very durable/flexible, but once u break it u cant fix it, and its more expensive

I just ordered the R34 bumper in fiberglass last night. 272.00 shipped. Ouch, but I didn't bother looking for a local shop to have it because no one would have it, and the shops that could order it for me would probably over charge me, so I ordered it myself from Sport Compact Only. Now the only decision I have is should I go with the F-1 Fenders, or the Shark Style fenders.....hum....I think I am gonna go ED F-1 since my front bumper is ED also.

Oh well, I'm happy with the R34 front. Yes, I only ordered the front for now....ahhaha, but I am not installing it until I decide on my fenders. The guy that is repairing my car was going to charge me almost the same price for a cheap aftermarket bumper for the price of an R34 front, so I figured that I would just buy my own parts and have him paint and install them. I am doing it piece by piece man, I am broke as hell right now lol.
