I endeavored what I had thought the impossible. I decided to install BOTH
bars on the car myself. The rear is easy, the front is a PITA. Here some pics:

and for those wondering WHY an aftermarket front bar solve driveshaft rubbing

Yup, I put the front in myself too. It's hard for a first timer. Alot of bolts to take off AND put back on. Taking the stock one off is not as hard as some say it, but it was installing the clamps to hold the new rubber bushings and new bar was the hardest of all. See, the new bar and bushings are thicker and bigger, but you have to reuse the stock clamps. So what ends up being that when you try to bolt the clamp back on with the new stuff you'll find that the bolt won't reach the thread without some brute forcing.
And yes, that's a 2.5 SS TT. The visible tip was meant for the regular valence.
As you see how the tips extends from the exhaust then dips down slightly and exits out the rear valence. Not sure how it would look on the 4mo valence, but a
straight tip should look better than the tip I have for your case.

Totally agree! The rear is simple but the front is a major PITA! Here are alot of pics that I took when I did mine. Shows alot of the area you have to work with or lower.

Are the triangle-things part of the package? They're all painted the same Neuspeed red, but I don't see how those are going to improve handling.

I just want to know.

lol! I wished those triangle things did come with my package, then I wouldn't
have to go out and buy them that day.

I got them from the recent Neuspeed group buy organized by KJ-VR6. <props man!>
and they were some where at 56% off retail price.

the rear makes a big difference. it makes the rear end alot tighter through turns. you won't feel the rear end sliding out anymore and handling overall is
neutralized and car rides relatively balanced, meaning a lot less body roll.
not only is the rear bar all that PLUS it is 3 way adjustable (soft, medium, and hard) to your tastes.
