I got into a little fender bender last Thursday, its not bad as its just the front bumper has a few small cracks and deep scratchs. The plate holder got ripped off and did most of the damage. Anyways the insurance adjuster says I will need a new bumper so now may be my chance to get a koup front bumper at no charge to me. I do have a few questions for the experts here.

- Is the 2011 Koup and Sedan front bumpers inter-changable?
- Is there anything that could go wrong with the change over?
- Has anyone done the change over?

Your expert help is needed here.

Thanks

Oh okay...my bad....sorry misunderstood...or was it that the fenders should have been swapped out because there was a overlap of some kind? Regardless the mod looked awesome!

Got a call from the body shop today and it's a no go. He asked about putting the '11 Koup front bumper on my '11 sedan and he was told no, don't do it. He was told it would not match up to the fenders, and the grill insert is a different size and style. Soo to make a long story short I will be getting a sedan front bumper...
