That mod is equally as G.H.E.T.T.O as cutting springs

Why's that? I think pushed in bumpers are a big improvement. And I don't think it makes the car less safe (or more fragile), considering that they're at least 16 years old.

Last E30 I had, I tried to push in the back bumper. I drilled the shocks, the stuff came out, but the shocks wouldn't budge. At all. The shocks were fused into one part by the rust. So don't tell me it'd change anything in an accident.

I agree. The plastic bumper swap is the way to go. But I can't justify spending $500+ on plastic bumpers. I'd rather invest that cash somewhere else. So the next best thing, to me, is pushing them in.
