The front bumpers are quite differently shaped and the lips from the two years are not interchangeable... everything else is the same (side skits and rear bumper).

Don't see anything confusing about that statement.

Default Face lift?

Hi well, although it looks very similar to the early bumper it is slightly different. I would sugest that you change the cross mounting member with the cover. ie take off the whole bumper, the mounting holes on the chassis member are in the same place. there are some small cosmetic differences but not enough to deter you. And if you have the time and if you can use the tools do it. Ian

the ONLY mounting holes in the same place are those for the bumper support... the bumper cover and lips have completely different hole patterns... been there, done that and it sucks. if you want a strait swap you need the complete bumper, including support and the nose and its support.

Yeah, you're right... that's the way to do it. I didn't realize when I first read your post you were saying to swap the support too.
