the 350 has a lower nose than ours (same height as the 18's but with a first gen style front on it) now if you had an 18 and wanted to go 350 it'd probably be slightly cheaper but for our versions there's a lot of parts you need not just the external panels.

Well, all I can say is thanks!! You learn something every day!! So, are you saying the front panel thing that holds the rad and lights is different?

location of crash mounts, inner wings, crash/rad bar, light mounts and something else are all different. there was a thread about it somewhere in the yank section that listed all the part numbers you'd need

i think most of them are all from the same oem but just rebranded you can usually tell who's is who's and which generation it is by the front splitter on them.

so if you look at a proper lower front splitter you can see its all one piece.



and if you look at theirs its split into 3 separate pieces



i think mr bodykit is doing possibly the closest replica at the moment.



but none of them have the front splitter coming out quite far enough in the outer corners if you look closely.
I canít put my finger on it, but that front end just doesnít look right?? It seems too narrow on the lower lip?

It may be cheaper and neater to import genuineGT350 parts and go the whole hog. I would certainly be interested in going halves on shipping for two sets.

Doesnít Mac have genuine GT350 parts on his beast?
Yeah done lots of research into this and like said genuine parts would need a lot of parts to fit bumping up the price. The company that supplies that rep bumper in the UK also make the rep wings, fenders etc all to fit a GT.

Mac runs the replica bumper from ikon and it needed work to fit, which you would expect from most aftermarket parts. Looking at lots of different front end options including RTR, Roush etc but all research for now as I wont be changing the car straight away as I want to live with it first, get to know what I like, what I dont etc.
