    FR-S/BR-Z bumper swap?

    So, I just joined the forum to see if I could get a question answered.

    Honestly, I like the BRZ more because I think it has better interior features and options that come standard, but I really like the front bumper on the FRS.

    There are a couple reason as to why I want this switch, A. The FRS bumper looks more aggressive, and B. the BR Rocket Bunny kit only work with the FRS bumper.

    Is the BRZ compatible with a FRS front bumper? Or will there be issues with the headlight or anything else?

    Thanks very much!

    Yes you can get a BRZ and put a FR-S front bumper on it.

    I prefer the BRZ headlights and prefer the FR-S front bumper.

    My thoughts exactly. FRS to me got the better end of the stick with aggressive styling.

    It seem to be a big project to me tho since the rocket bunny cost about $2700 for the whole kit plus the fr-s bumper, wider wheels set and beside that u have to drill and rivet the body kit into the brz.... And repaint everything...

    It's going to take some money. Good luck.

    Yeah I'm prepared for that, it's partly why I'll be stretching it out over several years. Wheels/exhaust for the first few, then after the warranty is gone, everything else.

    The FRS front bumper is indeed so much better looking than the BRZ. You just pointed that out to me! Thanks!
