Guys i have a 06 TSX IN NBP (Black). Im looking for the aspec kit due to the fact that its poly and can get it for cheap painted. The only issue is that the 06 look is not agressive as the 04/05 look. I know i need the 06 front but was thinking to put the 04/05 sides and rear on it. Has anyone done this? How do you think it will look? Will it fit? and will the paint match up>?

no.
it will not fit.

the sides are the only thing you can change on a lip kit.

both the front and the rear bumpers are quite different from 05 to 06.
the 04-05 has a less aggressive rear bumper and only fits 04-05 rear lips.


I personally think the 06-08 aspec kit looks terrible.
yup, you can get it painted for cheap, but I hate how it looks.

if I were you, I'd use some patience.
the Euro-R kit for the 06-08 isn't aggressive per se, but it's very clean looking.
other options are entire bumper replacements up front.


and about paint:
no, it won't match.
you car is pretty old, and unless it's been sitting in a garage its whole life then
it has faded by now color wise. any brand new painted item put on your car
will stand out. now being black, you're probably better off than most and might
just pull it off without much issue. without paint blending it might stand out.

the euro r kit is pretty expensive and hard to get ahold of. I been looking and cant seem to fit it. I only want to spend around $1,000 tops on a kit. LMK if you know where i can find a euro r

its japanese paint codes. they dont' have the exact same paint codes but its close enough. If they aren't discontinued, the front bumper alone will cost you around $2500-3000 after shipping, which is way out of your $1000 for an "entire lip kit" price range

I have a 2006. But i love the 04/05 aspec kit, but only the sides will work.

05 euro front + 06 aspec sides and rear looks the nicest imo..

yea the euro r front is expensive, looking for a used one is hard to come by, esp if you have to paint it.
