Okay heres my dilemma, I want the '04 style type r rear lip but i have an '03, so i would have to buy an '04 bumper just to use the '04 type r rear. my question is, what exactly is the fitment issue if I were to try to put the '04 rear on the '03 other then the flare? Cant i just support the the sides with screws and the rest with double sided tape? or is the '04 bigger in a sense. I dont like the look of the '03 type r style

Here's the '04 type R rear style

I think it would fit a kind of weird, wont be perfect fit for sure. And when you put it on, the area where the 04-05 bumper flares out, the lip will follow that flare, but in your case, you will see your bumper going the other way in the mud flap area.

the point is that i dont want to drop extra money for the rear bumper and get it painted to just get that lip so if i can save money there and just put that lip on my '03 bumper i'll be very happy because i can save a couple hundred

I would say goodluck with your exhaust and that lip. I melted mine and i have a 4" tip.

I have the rear kaminari on and the lip touches the rear lip and still hsant melted yet, been on for over a month. i'd prolly readjust the hanger anyways.
