Would never slam a crossover by this much, but I do like the custom paint and body work. This one is from Kuhl Racing and its utilizing an Air Force suspension. Really nice twin exit exhaust coming out the center of the diffuser, which I bet sounds great considering the size of the pipes.

I live in San Diego and not too far from the Mexican border. I reached out to Toyota of Tijuana since the Mexican C-HRs are the Eurospec models meaning they have the JDM bumper needed to do the conversion to add any of the aftermarket body kits. I just want to make sure if it's even possible to import the bumper over the border without breaking the bank since this is possibly the cheapest alternative IMO rather than ordering it through a shop and from Japan. Fingers crossed!

Oh yeah that would be a good idea. Hopefully you are able to do that cost me 1000 bucks to ship my bumper from Japan. :crying:

They wanted my VIN# for pricing. I told them it's a USDM model and wanted to know if it's safe and possible to get the bumper and other parts to do the conversion. It took them 3 days to answer my initial e-mail. It seems they don't know how to approach this and make it possible. I'm going to assume that this option is a dead end. :frown2:

I wouldn't say it is a dead end. I just gave them the year and model and told them this is the us version. They told me no guarantee it would.fit but everything fits perfectly. I wouldn't worry about the vin number so everything is essentially the same sep for the bumper due to the reinforcement bar on the us version being bigger for a bigger bumper is needed.

It is an expensive conversation but well worth it if that is the look you are going for.

I think the issue could be customs since it's coming from Mexico.
