    unless you buy from a real dealer you are going to get a bumper that doesn't fit.

    that's why it says "BW" instead of "Black Widow". Cause it's a knock off. Save the extra cheese and buy the real thing. It won't break as easy and will look a lot better.

    Unless you buy a kit that's made by a reputable manufacturer such as Ground Designs or Kaminari or Wings West, you're rolling the dice as to how it will fit.

    Generally speaking, the cost difference will be made up between a knockoff and a namebrand with the amount of bodywork that will be required to make it fit properly.
