I've been PM'ing him offering help/advice on other things. Pretty sure he knows I'm not an assh*le

At least I didn't come at him with the typical, "WTF?! DUDE SEARCH!!! THERE ARE TONS OF THREADS ON THIS ALREADY WHY DO YOU FEEL ENTITLED TO START ANOTHER ONE?!!? ARE YOU JUST FU**ING STUPID?! LAZY? BOTH!?!?! LEARN THE BOARD ETIQUETTE BECAUSE YOU JUST RUINED MY DAY BY POSTING A TOPIC THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DISCUSSED!?!?! ARRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!!!"

Or something like that.

Oh, and for the record, IMO the 95-97 front end is easily the baddest looking front end of all three eras.

That's why I'm eventually making the switch. And hopefully I can keep my 98 valence because I think that would look better than the 95-97 bumper/valence. The latter looks too "smushed"

I actually like the 01 the best. But I think it is a combo of the rounded chrome with the vertical bars. I think the 97 is a close second. It has a near rounded look vs the diagonal chrome of my 99

To me the 01-04 looks like an open mouth of a large fish or something.

To me the 95-97 looks like it's always pissed off and scowling at you.

To me the 98-00 looks awful

I agree. I didn't like my fish so I went with the scowl again.
