Yes it is possible, at least to swap a 00-02 one for an 03+. Check Satoshi's website, he's got a guide on how to do it.

I'm not too familiar, but how does the 00-02 differ from the 03+ hatch handle area?

someone should make a carbon fiber overlay for the 03+ hatch handle that keeps the chrome there with the sharper lines. thumbsup that shit would be pimpin

Wait wtf Thats not a real chrome piece on top of the 03 hatch handle, its painted on. You wont be able to swap it out because its not detachable, its one piece.
