RMM Front Bumper on 2005?

I was looking for a new body kit and finally decided on the RMM kit. I was checking out the Veilside but its too much dough right now. Anyways i am getting an '05 GTS (for shure yourock ). The question is would the RMM front lip fit on the '05 front??? As of right now im leaning towards no...if so can it be modified to fit?? Any suggestions? wave thumbsup

the rmm lip wont fit unless you get an 00-02 front bumper
*EDIT* im getting kinda sick of the negative comments of DBW just because apexi hasn't made something that is compatible with it doesn't mean DBW is bad spineyes

yea stop dissing the DBW. I havent had a problem with it. Oh well i cant turbo it any time soon. Hell i donyt have the money and i have to stick with warrenty to f it wink

But back to topic. Just like the WW lip it can be put on but there will be gaps and it will tno flow right. Here is a pic of WW on 03. If you ahve an 03+ celica you have liek 4 choices. Only one is reasonable.. scratch that non are wink There are 3 form japan wich costs a small fortune becasue you have to get genuine and shipping sucks. C-one, The one that starts with a V, and celica eligant for 03+. Now for domestic you have the Rassi lip. I dont liek it as much but i think its cheaper and take less time to get it. Thats really all you have. Now if you want to spend the money ot have it molded may as well jsut get one of the JDM ones. k thats all i got wink

don't get an 05 whatever you do
and it's too much work to get it modded to fit, get a full bumper

^ '05 Celi?? y is the limiter at 7,800...cuz as of now im confused...i have another thread in the performance section and its like 50/50 people saying that there is a limiter at 7,800 and some that there isnt spineyes frown


oh and back to topic...i think the Blitz is too crazy and a lot of cars have that kit...especially in my city there are a lot of Eclipses with it..i like the more discreat look of the RMM thumbsup

The '05 rev limiter issue is so confusing. I dunno what to think anymore. If you can go drive an '05 this weekend and let the salesman allow you to rev it till it hits fuel cut wink, then we could settle this once and for all. Apparently the earlier produced '05 didn't have it, but the newer produced '05 have it (like the ones sitting on the lots now).
