first off ... is the kit you're talking about like mine, or is it the complete bumpr etc ... if it's like mine, the kit doesn't even fit on my car properly, I had to mould it to the bumpers and rocker panels ..

I dont think you want to go through what i went through ... you will be worse since the kit isn't even made for you car..

but yea which kit do you want ?

A couple of things to consider.... the lines on the 2nd and 3rd gen coupes are different. That front bumper looks like it contines the line, so that wouldn't match up, and also on the rear, the 3gens have the reverse lights in the bumper and the 2gens have em on the trunk. It all depends how bad you want it and if you are willing to deal with things like that.

yes you probably can get the bumpers to Mount on your car.....but you will have problems getting thing to line up. and you will need to get 00-02 sc headlights as the spacing is different.

yea thats the kit i went with after.....not on my car yet but im sure its gonna look nice.........i dont see why it wouldnt fit your car.....as long as it measures up cause that kit doesnt replace the whole bumper its a mold job so id say it probably would fit with a bit of work

It wont be an exact fit on a 3rd gen but you should try tracking down the APC lip kit as that is the nicest looking one by far for the third gens. Anything can work with a little know how and patience. Just ask Jer. :wink:

for the ww kit on a 3rd gen...

the front won't fit b/c the bumper's got a completely different shape to it...
sides are fine...
the rear is fine but will cover about 1/3-1/2 of the reverse lights...
