The only thing I don't like is how the front droops down from the hood bodyline, then near the openings kind of squares off. Like below:



Compared to the OEM GT/aero fascia, which droops down more smoothly into the openings.



Otherwise I think they're fine.

Hey! I never said grammar was my best skill. Yet my posts are much more readable then some other members here. I hate the "your", "you're", and "you are" ones most so.

Pontiackid86 has a good point. I am not a big fan of the style on the red one but the white car looks ok.

I usually call it the smiling duck. Lol, but on rare occasion it actually does look good, like the white GT above and yellowstone's GT. Any body ever put one on a notchback? Seems like you only see that face on fastbacks.

Now the 355 REAR fascia.... Holy crap those are beyond amazing!!! I'm so dissappointed they haven't been selling. I would LOVE one, but well, brakes and suspension are going to have to happen first.

Its the duckbill. I dont like em in general with a few rare exceptions, and I dont have a problem with the length of the stock fiero nose but these seem to increase the overhang or the preception of it being longer.

I think it would look better pushed back and up a bit. I think it's because the fenders are thicker on the fiero and the bumper is slung too low and too far out. Never really liked this bumper.

That red example above just gives me a bad vibe. It seems like a quality install, and a quality paint job, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
If I was doing just a nose only, I'd do the Diablo-style, I think it's from PISA?

I always thought they looked funny. They look better on a Ferrari 355.

I've noticed it before too. The red one just looks droopy. The white one looks great though.

I think it depends on the nose and the overall look of the car, I like Yellowstone’s or Whodeanie’s former daily driver.

Wow.
I sure hope I chose correctly for my car!





(That's Dean's ex-daily driver behind my car....)

I'm way behind schedule in getting this new Amida Fi355 bumper mounted, but we shall see how it looks soon.
The Amida 355 bumper is actually slightly shorter than the OEM bumper, and yes, it's 2 pieces.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of Whodeanie's ex-daily driver with the Amida 355 nose and my car (OEM nose /...... soon to be Amida 355)



Dean's nose has the optional splitter mounted to the bottom of it.

I am not much of a fan of this style since it loses the side molding, seems to extend out further than stock (might just be an optical illusion), and they tend to nose down when looking at them at the side.


Amida's looks much better with a better flow off the fiero hood and retains the side molding. This is by far the best one available, but the lower section doesn't flow as nicely into the stock GT ground effects.


Whodeanie's old DD with the Amida nose, the tapered door piece and the bottom splitter flows the best (but not a huge fan of the lower center ground effects section - too low at the front and much lower than the front fascia when viewed from the side). This car is probably has the best overall execution of the 355 concept and I really like the rear bumper.


My opinion is Amida's 355 nose is the best on the market, just not quite ideal for my tastes (personal choice).

your welcome to take it for spin any time.
It's got new seats from Mr. Mike (w/ custom logos), carpet, and firewall covering. New shift and e-brake boots are on the way, along with headliner and sunvisors. LED interior lights setting in a box waiting to be installed.

I've got to get the time and create a thread with the updates.
