    If it's an '03' reg SXI, it should be the same bumper as mine originally was (LS / Elite style bumper)
    I thought about getting the valance & making it fit as well, but it fits over the removable lower part of the bumper.
    It would need securing / strengthening to keep it in position. Also you may not be able to fit the diffuser to that bumper.

    I managed to get an SRI bumper, bit of repair & repaint & go down that route instead.

    why not just cut the rear valance you have on your car, it's actualy quite easy

    i was advised it wont look as good. all i want is to put the exhaust on! never had this agro before. if i cut the valance, will there be a problem with the heat (dont want it to melt) or does a heat shield have to go on?

    chrisk318 if you contact Paul user name pmw123 he has had a vxr valance and insert bOnded onto his bumper that is the same as yours.

    I have seen it in the flesh and you cant tell the difference, looking underneath he cut out the places for the exhaust to come through.

    It looks like this
