I’m considering getting my 20’ Performance wrapped in another color and think it’s a good opportunity for a facelift. I really like the 2021 front bumpers and was wondering if it would be a direct fit with new fogs. I’ve seen both cars side by side and the dimensions look like it’ll fit but concerned if the electronics will be plug and play. Has anyone tried it?

The fenders are supposedly wider on the refresh so it might be too wide. We'd love to have someone measure.
Another thing is that you need to think about cooling since the louvres aren't there anymore.
The fog lights might not have the same plug, but it shouldn't be too complicated to do some trickery with the plug/wire.

The front flares are wider to accommodate 265 tires. If someone could get measurements vs a facelift car then we'd know for sure. Fog lights shouldn't be too hard to wire, but I'm very skeptical of thermals since the new bumper doesn't have the active louvres.

Hmm, but if you’re saying it flares out wider, I wonder if that’s true?
