Default 2003 bumbers on a 2002?

I'd really like to get colored bumpers... instead of using an aftermarket, would the 2003 bumpers fit the 2002? My PT just suffered a deer accident and since the bumpers have to be replaced anyway, the thought was to use the newer colored bumpers. Any thoughts?

they'll fit perfectly, only thing that night be different is if you use a turbo bumper, the opening on the bottom will be a little bigger.

If you look at the 2003 non-turbo bumpers, they have these "slots" on the left and right-hand sides of the bumpers. The turbo bumpers don't have these, and they are more rounded looking.

[?]Hey all ... the 2002/2003 Inferno Red Dream Cruiser is back from the shop .... amazing... looks like a totally different car with those smoooooooth DreamCruiser bumpers. The body shop matched the paint perfectly. No mounting problems, the bumpers had all the same mounting holes, just as all of you said. A couple of things ... there's no black 'flange' hanging down from the bumper as in the 2002 Limited... its kinda built in and the bottom of the bumper is actually a bit lower than the limited ... but it looks great! Also, the paint used was from PPG , its a three layer process due to the metallic flecking in the inferno red coat.. PPG recommends a 40 day wait before waxing and washing at a car wash ... only soap/water and towel dry. I'll post photos soon... but this is well worth the cost!!! $415 each, including paint!!! The Limited and Touring bumpers are actually more, they're $475 ... go figure!
