Default Crazy Sweet Noiyce Bumper Switch Out

Alright I have a little idea here to replace the SE bumper with the SSE or SSEi front bumper.

I know this might have been thought of before and rejected due to fog light match-up or something, but what if I just didn't put fog lights in those two holes?

Would there still be a problem

First off, there is a bumper and a bumper cover. The cover is what you actually see. I can't remember if there is a difference in the bumpers of SSE and SE or not. If there isn't, there will probably be holes in yours to accomadate the fogs. If there is a difference, you need: bumper, bumper cover, SSE fog lights, and probably extensions for the bulb wiring. Then you would be in business.

The main problem with switching Fascias is that the molding lines (ridges) will not match up & therefore you would have to change ALL the side moldings too, along with the rear fascia too.

I'm not even thinking of putting lights on the bumper just leaving the holes there as is.

As far as the mold lines go, would there actually be any mechanical problem with the bumper replacement?

No.... just your trim all the way around your car that lines up not wont with the new bumper unless you put on all new bumpers and trim all the way around.
