    Hi all,

    I have just won an auction on ebay for a new Honda Front splitter for my EX.

    However I've briefly seen that Honda introduced a facelift in 2012 which affected the bumper.

    My question is does/will the facelift/prefacelift bumper affect how the splitter will fit? Or will an accord splitter fit both pre and facelift bumpers?

    The advert does not specify if it is facelift or not

    Cheers,

    Jack

    In short, prefacelift will not fit a facelift.

    Do you have a link to the said item?

    I honestly can't tell from that image whether thats a pre/facelift item. Do you have a bigger image you could upload?

    Just get a few quotes from some body shops first as it may not be that expensive. If you've got a compressor to do the job properly then may be give it ago.

    I'm on a serious budget and by looking at the splitter it looks like any non-professional work could be well hidden by the lines and shape of it.

    I have sprayed things in the past with great success so might have a crack at it myself

    I think it will fit so a dummy install on your car before you repaint it to make sure.
