Did you have to do any trimming or modifications or it's a direct bolt-on??
On the hatchbacks direct bolt on. I did have to trim the lower portions of my rear so it widens it out to fit the three exhaust pipes. The shop cut it out for me when they installed. If you have the newer civic hatch sport rear it will not fit. You will need a new rear from previous sport hatch or buy a type r style rear diffuser. I did buy a new gasket from Honda. I don’t recall which gasket they used but I bought both (type r and sport hatch gasket) and returned the one they didn’t use.

Anyone else bothered by how the paint doesn't match up on the plastic bumpers vs the metal? It is especially noticeable on our white cars and is really bothering me. I understand this is normal, but man is it bugging me so much, now that I know it is there.

I originally thought that my car might be repainted because it looked different. Especially when the light hits it at some angles. Kinda annoying but I feel most people wont notice or just assume its the lighting.
