There are some enthusiasts out there who refuse to compromise on their builds, even if the replica variant may be more aesthetically attractive. Below are a couple shots of an authentic Zele Performance front bumper. (Of course, an authentic bumper is not available from Zele with carbon fiber trim.) However, the owner decided to have certain portions of it wrapped in carbon fiber before having it painted and clear-coated. Now, he could have easily opted to purchase the hack replica version of this bumper, complete with the carbon already done, for a fraction of the price of the authentic, but, instead, he decided to keep within the theme of the rest of his build: legitimacy.
In a social media world in which build mediocrity and faking the funk are praised and rewarded on a daily basis, JDMphasis would like to take a second and applaud those enthusiasts who refuse to cut corners. Respect.
