2017 front bumper

Anyone else 100% hate that ugly front bumper on the toyota 86... like it's honestly a deal breaker if I had to purchase the 2016 vs the 2017 for same price I'd choose the 2016 any day of the week. Anyone else agree? I will admit the 2017 has better interior color tho. I wasn't a fan of red in the pervious years.

I agree it's hideous. I'm sure there will be many 2017 owners doing bumper swaps. I picked up a 2016 about 3 months go and I'm so glad I did.

Hideous is an understatement lol. The fang looking things are horrid. Looks like something you'd see on the orginal need for speed underground game lol.

Its a personal preference when it comes to looks. I personally don't like it, but do like the removal of the red stitching in the interior. Allows you to have more choices of accents without clashing.

If I were in the market for a twin now, I would just go for the BRZ. The 86 just fell off the radar for me.

Yes its is fugly as hell. BRZ 2017 front bumper is ugly too, but not so much like 86. pre-facelift BRZ front for me.

I'd still begrudgingly go with the 2017 86 just cause I dont like how the BRZ has the 'smile' style radiator grill and mouth guard

Agreed. New FR-S bumper is not better than the older version.

But, I think the new BRZ bumper is better than the older BRZ bumper.

Series blue interior has my vote for best stock interior. I went full black leather. Hated the red stitch!
