but leaving out the side Skirts....

I was thinking it might make the car look too "heavy" or "flat.
My thinking....and still up for comment/discussion hence this thread....but my thinking is that a narrower waist and roll under the car around the midrift with the larger but rounded bumpers front and rear may look better....

some doctored fotos for examples....

It has too heavy of a 'chin' and looks unfinished without the sideskirts. Just my .02

the AMG skirts are the best in my opinion for the car. Im wearing the Rieger Infinity side skirts which are also simple and good. Just dont leave the car without skirts. Skirts, apart from their design, reduce the gap with the road and make the car look shorter, which is good cause its a roadster.
As for the bumper, mind that AMG is hard to find nowadays and that Rieger plastic for the front bumper is poor quality, easy in breaking, so you have to be gentle when moving on uneven surfaces bumps, pavements, garage cliffs.
Rieger's front bumper is so light that you can hold it with 2 fingers, I dont remember exact weight now.
At last I believe that if you change front bumper you should also look for Dectane angel lights

If you get authentic AMG bumpers it is worth it, like the reiger they are fairly light... and they improve the looks 10x. If you search around I believe I have pics of my conversion
