you can run a mugen lip on the 01-02 fronts and the grill has to be custom molded into a 01-02 bumper. not an easy task but it can be done. and yes please try to resize the pics next time.

If you want that exact front, then you need coupe bumper with its grill and coupe hood (if I remember correctly)...then good luck finding the front lip. It's near impossible; the only likely option is the replica from eBay.

It's doable. Just 3 or 4 parts you have to swap out.

As for painting the bumper, i have done it. Its not a hard task, just use painters tape(blue) and mask off everything you don't want painted. Don't forget the H symbol, i use i think 500 grtt or something like that and lightly sanded the OEM paint. After that i bought a glossy can of black spray paint and sprayed away. Kind of a cheapo job, but it does look good after i waxed it down.

in case anyone didn't catch it...the car he linked is an 01-02 sedan. OP, if you want that exact look up front...best thing to do is to swap the bumper from an 01-02 sedan. You may have to get fenders and hood to get it to look exactly right. Then you can always try to put the OEM front lip on it and work it to fit.

Personally I like the way your car looks the way it is now.

Wouldn't have to change fenders for any reason, no matter what bumper or hood you want to put on.....
