Question Whats better looking, the RS or SS bumper?

I've read many opinions stating the SS bumper is better looking than the RS and vice versa. I just want to know what the majority thinks. I personally think the RS bumper is much better looking because the SS bumper gives the car a hollow European look. I dont know about you but I want a modern American musclecar look, which is exactly what the RS bumper gives you.

I know they are around here some place, but a picture on this thread comparing them would be nice, blown up so as to compare them correctly.

Yes, I'm lazy...lol.

RS bumper definitely earns my vote. It's the original bumper that I fell in love with

I like the leaked photos of the RS bumper best out of any we have seen so far. But we have been told that we're not getting the whole story so we should wait and see what the final products are going to be for all models.

The worst bumper is the one on the new Bumblebee, by the way. Yuck!*

*My humble opinion.

V6:



SS:



It's not exactly fair because of the front license plate mount, the fact that the V6 pic is more mocked up, etc., but I still like the supposed SS bumper better.

Almost the same, other than the hood scoop right? At least from what I can see...

The ss bumper isnt official, it wont look exactly like that.

the grills are different, the fog lights are spread further apart, the bottom lip is larger, and there is a little notch on the side.

The lower grill on the presumptive SS bumper is bigger and the "lip" below it is more pronounced.

As it has been said before, we don't know for sure that this is the SS bumper. Plus I'm guessing we'll get more flattering photos of the SS on Monday.

We need a better picture of the SS with a contrasting color and less reflections. The RS looks so much nicer because it's not an IVER. I'd like to see a more fair comparison.

I think the SS bumper looks better - a little classier with the bottom lip and the pushed out fog lamps.

Hopefully the SS will Be available as a SS/RS..With the RS Front Bumper Cover. Otherwise I'll change it my self.

Yeah, we need an official SS pic or better one for a better comparison. Both look GOOD to me!
