2015 Nismo Bumper on 2009 Sport possible?

Here's the rear as it comes from Nissan. Point to note. It does NOT come with the towing cover. You'll need to order separately. Was going to post today anyway

Was going to post today anyway but I picked this up from the shop today.

I agree - in the back, its so thin that you won't be able to tell if the nearest match isn't perfect. Get a good wrapping place and you should be good.

It's on!

I'm really happy with it, transforms the car!

In my opinion you do not require any thing that is not already on the car to install this - just the bumper and the tow cover.

Had a set of mirror covers painted too.

I know it wont be t everyone's taste and not all will agree but I've put the NISMO badges on, I imported them from america a while ago and while I've debated whether to put them on for a while, I decided to go with. I think it finishes the rear nicely and I don't have to worry about filling a hole in the front bumper.

Excuse the crap pictures, I was in a rush to get everything done and get to work.






Last job to do is add some black to the rear of the skirts where it should have been masked off.

I was asked a few days back what is needed for the rear conversion. In my opinion - just the bumper and the tow cover. Everything else can be taken from your old bumper.

There is a small gap between the bottom of the bumper and the non Nismo arch liners but Its very small and personally I wont be adding the arch liners.

I think you need a pre 2015 Nismo wing to make it perfect.

I've been thinking about the wing. Possibly a carbon duckbill of early Nismo. I dont want to imitate 2015 exactly, just body styling wise to me it is exactly what I want.

One of the main other reasons is fitment. I'd like to be able to return the car to stock if i chose to sell the parts off. So any spoiler has to use the OEM location points.

Pre 2015 OEM NISMO uses sport spoiler holes.

There will be a gazillion holes and the duckbill will not cover/use all of these holes. Work will be required to plug what you will not use if you decide to go with the DB spoiler.

Here's how mine came out. Done.

Here's a few of mine with the older Nismo wing (not OEM but a seibon CF replica)

That looks sexual. I'd like a half carbon version of that

That's no problem, just leave the top CF, paint the rest.

I am not sure about the holes on the Seibon, I think they also use OEM, but maybe LMBmike can confirm.

That does look great.

Have any of you swapped in a pre-2015 nismo rear bumper on a pre-2011 non-nismo ?
