Front bumper options

Hello everyone. I'm looking for some different options to replace the front bumper on my 2013 SS. Long story short, I went on vacation last week and when I got back home I noticed my bumper was cracked on both sides just under the lower grille. I drove my truck while we were on vacation, I wasn't in the Camaro. Anyway, my first thought is to do the ZL1 conversion and I already know exactly who I will buy it from if I go that route. Just wondering what else may be out there. Pictures would be nice, if you don't mind posting them. Thank you all in advance.

That looks really nice. Is that an APR splitter? I was thinking of doing that same exact setup. Does it just go under the existing splitter?

That's something a little different. It looks great. What do you mean that it not easy to get right, if you don't mind me asking?

tons of horror stories about people basically having to make the bumper themselves as its super flimsy. I THINK they went out of business as I checked there website a while back and it didnt work

I made them. Heated up OEM headlight in oven 425 degrees and then pried apart. Installed Audi style DRL leds with screws and silicone sealant provided. Then glued the 2 halves back together with silicone sealant.

You can wire lights to be drl white, and or turn signal yellow.

Lights available on ebay and other auto light bulb stores.
