VelossaTech diffuser fins help the look a lot:
I think its more having a dark colored car helps a lot,m when you have a white car, all the black plastic just sticks worse than a VTEC badge on the back...


I've just been thinking I may need to find a 13-14 bumper to swap out (if it even fits)

what parts are different? is the body really that different? weird that the body is similar enough that the front bumpers (along with headlights and hood) can be swapped between the two but the rears can't :(

The 15 up model has smaller taillights thus the taillight pockets of the rear quarter panels are different. This is the reason bumpers cant be swapped If you did fashion a 13-14 bumper on a 15 up there would be a 2" gap left under the taillight. I thought at least the valence portion of the bumper could be swapped between years but nope there is a differences is how far they wrap around down by the reflector. After finding this out I went the loder 1899 route. westside.jpg

well since the front bumper swap requires the headlights to also be swapped, would it work if the taillights were also swapped?

not that its really that big of a deal because at that point, the prices will probably be close to each other and the Loder lip does look very good on there.

A guy local to me did a RS conversion. He said it was a straight swap but the exhaust had to be reworked. I don't have pics but here's a video LOL.

*edit: i recall him saying he's on here. dunno where his thread is though. and he also mentioned that there's a long wait to get this specific part lol*
