Don't know about the lip, but according to some member here, the Inspire bumper requires the Inspire hood and grill to make it work.

i know i needed the grill but i think the hood is the same cause some guy on ebay was selling all that stuff and he said only the bumper and grill needed to be together and as for the hood they both are the same but im still not too sure

I don't think that guy on e-Bay is right. I just looked at it myself, and it certainly looks like the Inspire hood is shorter than the Accord's hood, due to the chrome grill being much larger.

Here's a thread where it is discussed some.......

Here's some pics of an Inspire......

look how the hood doesn't come down to the short horizontal top edges of the front bumper, on the inside of each of the headlights. It does on the gen7 Accords.

Just my observations...... I can't say with 100% certainty that it won't fit though. But most people seem to think that it won't work with an Accord hood.

It's possible that an e-Bay seller may not be totally honest. Or he may just be wrong, but think he's right.
