so for not reason at all i was looking at JDM mr-s' on import sites. and notice sometimes they have this front bumper with recessed foglights on 00-02

whats the story behind it? was it a dealer option in japan?

The 00-02 bumper covers have a template in the back to cut those holes and the bezel and fogs are (or used to be) available through Mr. T. I've seen these state side. I think this should have been standard- I like the look.

I on the other hand do not like the look. But yea, IIRC if you had the part numbers you could order them through the dealer stateside.

Pretty sure they were all shipped from Japan Parts or Carson...via a similar process. I don't think you could ever walk into just any dealer and get them. I think the same can be said for the mud guards. Though...there are times that I'm tempted to try ordering them from some of the discount online parts dealers just for the heck of it.

I've always liked the JDM bumpers for their lack of a side marker though...

They weren't available through stateside dealers. There was an ebay seller selling carbon fiber versions of the surrounds a while back.

It's for parking reasons- lets you know where the front of the car is.

you're correct X.

I've also got a set, but never installed them.
