looks like the fog light placement is not going to match up. Looks like the hood could be interchangeable though. It looks like the headlights are in fact the same.

so, if you bought the bumper and grill, it looks conceivable it would be able to swap. You'd probably have to take the fogs out of the sedan bumper, and then transport them over to the coupe. I think the fogs themselves look the same,...it's just a matter of the placement. Could be pretty interesting

It would be cool to see a coupe front end on a sedan and vise versa.

Whole front frame is the same, hood is the same, fenders are the same, headlights are the same, bumper is different and that's the only difference in the front end.

so the bumper will clip in without issue from one car to the other 100%? Do you have a source verifying this, or did you try...or?

So someone needs to clone the coupe bumper and sell them in mass. Otherwise, you're probably easily looking at $600+ to get one shipped and then painted.

kind of like my old 7th Gen 2001 sedan then, with front and rear bumpers the same, it was easy to kit it, but the side skirts were another story(sedan vs coupe). even going from the basic 9th Gen dx/lx and throwing foglight covers and foglights on make it look so agressive.

I've not looked for 9th parts, but there are companies that clone oem parts and sell them to collision shops. They're cheaper...just not made by Honda.

the ones I've seen were as good as oem. They were bumpers.. made just like oem bumpers. Shop painted them, and you'd never know.

If you have a credit union close, I'd give them a call for rates. They tend to be the lowest of any banks etc. Even lower if you have the car payment setup to some form of auto-pay. They would tell you their specific rules. Each bank is slightly different.
