I'm sure that this question has been asked about 100 Million times on the forums here but I'm curious, if the HB and sedan have a difference in the front bumpers because I keep seeing some nice lip kits that I like but they all ways say 4 dr and not hb. I know I wouldn't be able to use the back lip and I've read that the sides are the same but what about the front bumpers?
so is there a difference in the bumpers after 06, like the 07 up? and I noticed on nextmod that they list a grille that looks like the axela I guess but it says for 07 up? Did they change the grille up that much after 06?
yeah, won't be doing any complete front end swaps, that's for sure. I don't want to change out the front bumper though, I prefer just a simple lip of some sort for the front of it. I also want to do a grille swap for the Axela style but I've seen so many types so far I'm not really sure what is actually Axela and what is just something someone is trying to pass of as one. Thanks for the info though and hopefully once I get started I'll be able to show off what I've done.

Axela = 3 in Japan
04-06 bumpers differs from 07+
Sedan bumpers differs from hatches
There are lips available for the 04-06 hatches
Thanks, I was just curious about the change in bumpers and all after 06 so I guess that explains why the Axela style grille listed on nextmod says 07+. So I've seen these open style grills, what are they suppose to be, just something different because they certainly don't look like an Axela from what I can figure out
