Thanks mate. I was leaning more towards the chrome version too :). They're also a lot easier to find and a lot cheaper than the black version. The headlight lens number is 13-49 and the corner light lens number is 13-51 (the numbers are the same for both the black and chrome version).
Funny that you mentioned the FX-GT bumper, as I was considering getting one a little while ago, but decided against it as I didn't really like how wide the 'mouth' was, especially when fitted to a white car (see how fussy I am? [/I] [I]). If I ever go for a 4A-GE with a turbo conversion then I'll probably get one though, as that mouth would come in useful for a front mount intercooler (H)
no problem , and yes the chrome ones should be much easier to source and the black housing has been done to death almost every AE100 on cardomain.com has them and that kind of makes them less appealing
in a weird way I came across this picture in which the stock corners somehow rock the crystal headlights (different and interesting)
and I know what you mean about the the whole wide mouth thing that the FX-GT bumper has going on, but good for placing an FMIC and if I were you i'd go for the whole 3S-GTE route if turbo route is preferred
but then again the cost $$$ and the work involved in it will probably let some people down
so a good 4A-GE turbo or even a 4A-GZE will do (opt for the C56 trans it is literally indestructable , I should know lol)
I really like these two bumpers very much!
