Hey folks, got a question about an 04' "Euro R" I saw posted for sale here in North Carolina. I liked the front bumper of this model much more than the stock front end of my 2006. Its a little larger and has a bottom lip that flashes outward. Does anyone know of a similar aftermarket front bumper that is similar to this? Im wanting to replace the stock front bumper of my 06' with one that is larger with a slightly sportier look. Thanks in advance!

if you want to run the 04/05 euro r look on your 06 you will need to change out the front end. You will need a 04/05 jdm bumper, euro r lip, euro r grill and radiator cover.

Does it fit right once I have all that, or do I need to make adjustments on my 06' to have it fit right? Thanks for your response by the way

Has anyone actually used an 06-08 hood with the rest of the front end 04-05? Not sure how well it's gonna look. Everything else is 100% bolt on and good.

Everything should just bolt on. If you want the true 04/05 look you'll have to get the hood as well but that's not a requirement, many people with 04/05 swap out 06+ hoods to get rid of the chrome piece.

I think I'm just going to remove the chrome grill and either paint it myself or have my local shop paint it for me. Want an all black grill outside of the Acura symbol. As far as the actual front bumper, can I buy the aspec bumper to put on my 06'? I guess that needs to be my question. What new front bumper options do I have on a stock 06'. Im close to finishing my build/mod and this is a big part of it. I love the look of my 06' outside of the front. Especially the grill. Ive also seen where people are putting sti lip guards on their TSX. Not sure why theyre using those when they dont fit flush and not the thick universal rubber lip guards that can mold to the front. The only issue people have with those is the 3M double sided tape, but some come with screws to bolt it on. If I add one to the stock front bumper to help with the look thats the plan. Not a sti lip guard

the only thing you can do to you 06 front bumper without changing it is an 06-8 euro r front lip or 06-08 aspec front lip

modulo, mugen, kenstyle and spoon have bumpers but they're all rare and cost 1000+

Thank you. That's what I needed regarding information. For now, I'm going to get the front grill painted black (outside the Acura symbol) and maybe install a lower bottom lip guard. Although, I will not be using the sti lip, as it doesn't fit. Thx guys!

Topgeardo, I should also ask, you are referring to the very bottom piece of the front bumper with your response correct? I wasn't sure if that EuroR front lip/bumper would fit on the 06' without changing some other things on the car
