Thank you. You have rated this product.
Have you ever wondered why the upper two-thirds of the center mouth opening on your RX-8 is non-functional? Go ahead and look and you will notice that area behind the plastic mesh grill is actually closed with a "fake" grill.
The reason for this quite simple, if this area was open you would see a large "bumper bar" assembly (topped with a piece of Styrofoam for 5 MPH impact protection) located directly behind this opening. For this reason, many of the various aftermarket noses that feature a large central opening must hide this bar with some type of screen, cover, grill, etc..
Racing Beat designed the Type I nose to completely cover this bumper bar and eliminate the need for an additional insert or cover. If required, an optional Fog Light Relocation Kit is available to reposition the stock OEM driving lights to a location inside the central mouth opening. In addition, if you want to add the genuine Mazda OEM emblem to your new nose, these available at a very reasonable price. Produced exclusively in the United States using high-quality fiberglass materials, the Racing Beat nose kit is ready for final fitting and sanding prior to painting. Complete instructions are provided for removal of the stock nose, repositioning of the driving lights, recommended preparation steps prior to painting, and final installation.
