Very nice! IMO, absolutely worth it for a (when new) $60k+ car kept in great shape.

I truly wanted Streamline to succeed but will never buy anything from them ever again.

I'm still trying to fit my Streamline bumper. Definitely hasn't been the easiest process with the bumper shock situation on these. I'm holding out hope it can look halfway decent. 90% would still be an improvement on my current, stock bumper, which is in pretty rough shape.
Not me - it has to be 100% perfect or it will drive me crazy. I'd waaaaaaaaaayy rather have an OE Euro bumper or OE US bumper (in that order) than a 90% CSL rep.

My front lower is getting chewed up from when wife was driving the car - dammit! A new Euro is looking pretty good.

Of course.... I would obviously rather have 100% perfect OE over 90% CSL rep. I'm saying 90% CSL would be better than what I currently have on my car, a really rough, stock, 170k mile bumper. Since I already own this CSL bumper, I will obviously do what I can to get it right prior to going out and spending more money on OE anything, and I will live with it quite a long time if it is a decent improvement, even if not completely perfect. Nothing on my car is really 'perfect' at this point. So 'perfect' might actually look out of place.

So just throwing it in the trash seems a little wasteful. I know there are more people out there where the bumper could have been used and it been an improvement.

Speaking of OE Euro Bumper.. Anyone know the best place to source one price wise? I know they aren't terrible until you start factoring shipping but curious if anyone has had any luck finding one decent with shipping.
