nope, couldnt see how they installed it due to covid-19, they didn't allow customers in the shop floor for safety.
Ok. Understand and thanks.

I know is a personal preference but do you think it will look ok without it or you think it will look unfinished?

It would look odd without the winglets since its part of GT500 style and design.

Am I the only one who looks at this and doesn't think GT500 clone, but i look at how clean the 18 and up looks with these bumpers and i say to myself. . . "Ford should have made the 18 GT350 look this way"
It looks so clean, and im buying one for sure

Is anyone else running this with a base belly pan and having issues with fitment under the headlights? I'm seeing some spacing under both headlights and not sure if the belly pan is the culprit (allowing flex from wind resistance), if I just mounted it wrong, or if it's just the bumper itself. Thinking of upgrading to the PP version.

To be honest the only part i don't like of the Bumper is the huge side Winglets if i call them correctly. Does somebody have a pic of the Bumper without them?
This is the i5autohaus bumper. I wasn’t a fan of the winglets so I left them off. Alittle too flamboyant for my taste. The paint job and the fit was pretty good!

Excellent. I am convinced. Can you post a side pic to see the look without the Winglets?

I saw a GT350 ikon bumper and boy the blue washer fluid tank really did show. I know some of you talked about fabricating some plastic over behind grill to mask it, would painting the lower front facing area of the tank black work?

It could still be done, there are some gt500 without the winglets.

Also goes great with mp concepts gt500 style side rocker splitters (15-20gt, ecoboo, v6)..i ordered from American Muscle.

Dawae, I have been contemplating the bumper upgrade but haven't seen really good photos until I saw yours. Looks really good. The spacers and stock ride height don't look bad either. I have a 2019 PP1 in RR and am going to do it as well. I think the stock mustang bumper looks mish-mashed to me while the GT500 looks aggressively simplistic. I prefer 'aggressively simplistic' :) I also like the stock PP1 wheels and wing and to me they all go well with the bumper upgrade. I'm never going to try and emulate the GT500, but the bumper makes sense to me. Just brings the package together.

Love it!
