    2) it won't fit usdm bumpers

    blackonblack98 is correct. Judging by the license plates, it appears to be from a company called "whole9"

    That kit is made by Experience. You can probably get it through JDMpalace.

    the front bumper seem almost identical to the u.s. So i will have to get bumper and support? All that will probably add up to about the same amount if i were to buy a whole kit like the insurance kit? btw will those bodykit needs jdm bumper support?

    I'll let the others answer those specifics. I only knew that the bumpers were an issue and usually the US supports are bigger than the Japan ones..not sure about fitment on this particular car though...but it's been pretty standard otherwise for other cars I've worked on.

    The Japenese bumpers are shorter then the US bumpers. Look at the front bumper closely. Its different then the US bumper. The middle section of the front lip wont line up to the US bumper.

    Thats not to say you cant make it work. A good body shop should be able to extend the sides of the bumper for you and modify the middle parts. At the end, that would cost you the difference between a full bumper replacement.

    As far as the grill goes, it will bolt on to the US bumper. It will not be flush, the sides kind of stick out but its not too noticable.

    Good luck.

    what do you mean by modifying your front bumper do you have that kit? or are you talking about the grill?

    I would love the opportunity to mod a car of this level, at this level of transformation. It's not a cheap build by any means. I mean even on my car, if I want to get one JDM lip kit I need to change the entire bumper/brackets and many more safety parts that are JDM only. I am sure you can imagine the cost of F50 lip kit build like the one your talking about.
