    Will this work? I'm pretty sure theirs an EK9 in scrapyard near me and I prefer the EK9 bumper.

    only if there both cars are the same, i.e facelift and prefacelift. A facelift bumper won't fit a prefacelift without mods, wings lights and bonnet.

    ^^ as long as there both pre or post lift's then YES.

    so if the headlights are the same shape they'll fit?

    96 to 98 is prefacelift. 98on is facelift. THey look quite similar, but are actually different. Just check the years.

    FYI, the rear bumper will fit no matter what year.

    Why the rear bumper of an EK9? I have a Jordan one (they're the same) if you want?

    tbh its the front I wanted so I can fit some yellow fogs in the factory holes?

    you would need the fenders, headlights, hood to make the bumper work

    nice :Smile: so the only difference with the pre facelift EK9 bumper is the splitter and lack of bump strips? I just think it'd work out cheaper to get a bumper without the bumpstrips as standard, plus then it means no cracking etc. Any idea how much I'd be looking at for a pair of the pre facelift EK9 bumpers? Also are the side bumpstrips and sill covers painted on them as standard?

    Basically I don't want any textured plastic on my car, it's just not right lol

    Thanks for the tips so far guys you've been very helpful with my n00b questions :lol:

    yes, the sidestrips and sills are colour coded from the factory on a EK9. Not sure on price but try a place called japperformance parts. They break EK9's and will have all the parts you want in stock.
