Thanks for the insight. The "L" bumper is the top portion of the pic, and the "S" bumper is the bottom half. I merged them together to show their differences. Although I do like the "grills" I'm OK with the "S" type bumper. I could always tear'em down and (re)rivet the bottom portion to keep it "L"-spec. We'll see.Sounds like you just got an earlier S bumper. Later ones have same inlet grills like the L bumper in picture. I don't see pix of S bumper but if it has a black tape stripe it came off a black S.
Hmmm...if they can fit some sort of 'glass pack' in between without too much cost or work-effort, then this might be an option. I live in a rural area so don't want to upset the neighbours. Thx again!Just Ansa rear will be louder without center muffler but I would try just straight pipe from cat to rear Ansa pipe connector or add a straight through round cylinder muffler "glas-pak" in place of center resonator to mellow out sound.
