If so.. anyone know the best place to get one?

If not.. any other suggestions for a subtle upgrade?

no they don't make an oem lip kit for the 01-02. I know people with the 01-02 tend to get get the mugen style lip. But I know some 01-02 owners that really want the OEM lip for their cars, that they swap their front bumper out for a 98-00 just so they can mount one on. The mugen style looks good on the 01-02 style front bumpers

I may check out the Mugen lip if I can come across one. Even though I'd like the removable grill.. I'm too partial towards my 02 front bumper to swap it for a 98-00.

uh.. yeah.. it is.



edit: after going back and looking at the picture i can see how it looks that way. it's just a weird angle. you have to look really closely to make out the shape of the front bumper in it.

Mugen lip it, they look awesome on the 01 - 02 front bumpers. You can find fake ones on eBay for pretty cheap but who knows how long they will last before they crack or something. If you get it, get it painted, don't leave it the color of the ABS, it looks kind of cheap.

I'm looking at an 01-02 Accord coupe, although I want to put the Kaminari lip kit on (which only fits 98-00).

If I was to put a 98-00 front bumper on, does it mount up exactly the same? Other than getting a 98-00 front bumper, will the sideskirts and rear bumper lip fit the stock 01-02 bumpers okay?

You'll need the rear bumper swap too. The bumpers between 98-00 and 01-02 are the same dimensions, just different design. Honda made room for the fog lights and a few other changes. Look at my sig to see a 01-02 coupe front bumper with fog lights.

How about swapping an '01-'02 sedan front bumper with a '98-'00 sedan front bumper? Would I just need the bumper cover, or is it a more detailed process (meaning different brackets, spacers, etc.? Also, I observed in some of the pics of cars with the swap, they seem to have a gap between the grill and the hood. Is that just me, or is that due to the abscence of all those bars the '01-'02 grills have?
