    Hi
    Is the front bumper for the 2012 prius c / aqua interchangeable with the facelift 2015 version?
    I know I'd need to get new grills and turn lights. I just want to be sure it fits smoothly. This is my first mod.

    Thanks

    Bhu

    No you would need all new headlights too.

    Out of curiosity, are the headlights shaped differently? Or is it different mounting point issue? I'm wondering if led headlamps for the '15+ could be obtainable for cheap via junkyard/fleabay.

    With the front bumper, that would be cool if you could swap them out. It opens up the option for '15+ folks to get the '12/'14 front and the kits that are made for it. Not that I've tried hard, but I haven't seen any lip kits for the '15+ types.

    Thanks. I'm up for it as long as no drilling/reshaping is needed :)

    I don't think it would be as simple as plug and play though. The 15-16 headlights only have the one projector light which is used for both DRL and Headlights. Since the old ones have separate DRLs there might also be an issue with shape/size. Also the headlights are freaking expensive.
