2015 Nismo Bumper on 2009 Sport possible?

The only reason the old conversion costs so much is because of all the different parts that have to be replaced to make it bolt together like OEM. All signs

The only reason the old conversion costs so much is because of all the different parts that have to be replaced to make it bolt together like OEM. All signs point to that not being the case with this one. So aside from their silly DRLs, the conversion really is just a bumper cover and some additional plastic bits. Seems like Nissan was smart about fabbing up this kit.

I will most likely try my hand at wrapping CF over the finishers and DRL holes (Or convert them to CAI ducts). I know the DRLs "complete" the look, but I can't justify that expense.

We are planning to order for our newly acquired shop car will be with moonbeam and maybe some other accessories.

We have fitted lots of LEDs with custom brackets in different cars including Z/GTR the quality always remains the main issue the one we used in Raptor are 400$ a pair and one we use in GTR are OEM ones huge quality issue, if someone change the 400$ ones twice or thrice in 2-3 years works out same.

Lip ideas? I think the air dam is a bit too busy. Needs to be tamed. But maybe you can integrate something that can snap in with the bumper.

I don't see an easy way to tame it without covering a large portion of the lower area. At least it is more tame than the Varis kit.

I think thats the appeal, otherwise why not just leave the "regular" front bumper and add a lip?

Meh. I have other plans. It'll be a bit subtle especially if I decide to repaint the entire car.

The Ings lip that you have is very subtle and a nice addition to the car. I wouldn't think about swapping bumpers if I had one of those attached.

The lip kit is destroyed so I plan to take off the kit. The next time I decide to do body work I don't mind modifying the NISMO front bumper, but I also want to get the new sides and a different rear as well as give it a new paint scheme. It's a lot of work, so I'm not doing anything in the meantime.

I'm moving forward with the bumper conversion. Still waiting on the bad news that there is an expensive skid plate though. Every picture that I look at shows an additional piece below the bumper, that does not look like the under tray, and does not appear to be attached to the bumper cover in Z1's picture.

Z1 said that Nissan is being very guarded about what pieces are required, so I have a feeling more will be added as we proceed.

Something else for the price list. The little Nismo logo on the bumper, $110. I won't be adding it since I don't have a "true" Nismo and will only be installing the bumper.

I double checked and I was wrong about the $150.

Here is the current list that I was quoted.

Front Fascia: $370
Front red pieces(may not be red): $49 each
Running lights: $678 each
Front Nismo emblem: $110
