2006 rear conversion

i am looking to buy an accord coupe but i dont like the rear end of the new 2006 coupe. i was wondering if the trunk for previous years will fit without changing the tail light. i like the rounded look of previous year acoord coupe

sorry the trunk won't line up with the tail lights nor the bumper.....

if you wanted to do a rear end conversion you'd need the tail lights off of the 03-05 as well as the trunk and bumper....

why not just save the money and buy a used 03-05.....i can understand 03-05 owners that want to upgrade to parts that are out for the new 06...but the other way around is kinda perplexing...just get an 03-05....i beleive that you would need trunk, bumper, lights and possibly rear quarter panels as well..

why not be the first to remove and fill in the 3rd brake light on the trunk? than try to integrade one in the oem spoiler. that sounds alot more feasible than changing trunk, lights etc,... i like the new rear ends, but your right, that 3rd brake light kills it.

i think the 06 rear end is SO MUCH BETTER LOOKING than MY03-05. The new ones make my 04 coupe look so dated and ghetto.

i used to not like the 06 rear end either, until I drove behind HONgDA's car for about a day.

it looks so damn classy and high quality. I love it. you guys gotta see it in person, lowered, and waxed.

however, I've seen colors other than NBP and didn't like it as much...
