    I have found some bumpers on ebay and seller is saying that the Air Ducts are different, 2 questions.

    1. Am I talking about a lot of money to change Air ducts.
    2. And is it a straight swap to change air ducts?

    Suggestion guys, I'm getting Mtech kit this week but not changing wheels, 2 reasons for that
    1 firm ride on bigger wheels
    2 cost

    Do you think mtech bumpers will look ok on standard 17 inches wheels?

    No, if anything it could do with 19's to fully fill the kitted body. Worried about the ride on 18's then don't be, perfectly acceptable. You could always go non RFT's and that will be more compliant than your 17's.

    My only problem is the cost, if I change the wheels it is going to add the cost quite dramatically.

    Have a look I dont have standard 5 spoke 17 inches they are upgraded wheels. I just love the front m-tech bumper!
