: I wouldn't use fiberglass, particularly on the front of the car. Don't do it unless you track your car and don't care about the longevity/appearance.
I would not use fiberglass unless this is a race car where weight saving is paramount. It gives you absolutely no crash protection, period.
An insurance Co may point their finger at it and claim it's not a DOT approved part...
That said, I can also add since I have a very similar one on my race M3, that the fit and finish are not up to snuff either. The sides are especially bad. You need to devise a way to attach the sides as the factory type mounts are not on the FG piece. Also, the gap between the bumper and the grill is positively HUGE! Lastly, the squares that cover the mounting nuts in the front won't fit the FG one either, so you'll have two big ugly holes.
