Default Question about bumpers

Is it possible to put the newer looking '06+ bumper style on an '02 PT Cruiser? The reason I ask because that's one of my gripes about my current PT Cruiser is the fact that I have bumpers that are grey and look dull and don't match my paint. Could I just buy '06+ bumpers that are the same color (if they offer the same color) and just put them on and call it a day?

NO. They are shaped for the newer style headlights which are different than yours. You can have your bumpers painted to match your body color. I did and so did many other owners. The grey ruff bumper has to be sanded, primed and specially painted with a flex agent so it won't crack.

No, but if you can find an '03 - '05 PT in your color in a junkyard, those will fit.
Staring in '03, PTs (except base) came with painted bumpers.
