Default F-sport Grill on non F-sport .

Good day to you all ,

I have an is 350 ( non f sport ) and I like the front bumper but I prefer the f-sport grill . Anyway did anyone try installing the f-sport grill on non f sport ? And how do you think the car will look like ?

Hello. Unfortunately, it is physically not possible. The F-Sport bumper houses a narrower spindle grill design than on the non-F-Sport. The only "option" is to replace the bumper/grill in its entirety which would be costly.

It's possible but like corrado said, you may not only replace to bumper but also the grill. You may also need to replace and supports behind the bumper. When I use to run with my 04 RSX, I retrofitted it with an 05 bumper and lights and had to get new light support brackets. Ppl who did the USDM integra conversion to an ITR front end also needed to get a new front impact frame since the bumpers where designed slightly different. Again it's possible but would be costly.

The best thing I can do is to take some measurements and look for the mounting place .
