Accord Ex-L 2006
We recently got a 2006 accord which has clearly seen a bit of action. The front bumper was badly repaired and (as I recently discovered) held on with only a screw - not the correct one. As my wife was backing out of the driveway it just fell off, caught on the ground and tore. I've now secured it properly with cable ties, but it really needs replacing.

The best condition one I can find on eBay in the same colour is from a 2003 estate Type S.

Question is, will this fit on our 2006 ex-l model? Ours is a coupe, but they are both Mk7, right?

EUDM and USDM bumpers are not interchangeable
the cl7-8-9/cn1 EUDM/JDM accords were also not sold as coupes, only sedan

My mistake - our car is the sedan (I was confused about the terms). Both are EU models, if that’s what the EU in EUDM stands for, as opposed to USDM (if that refers to US models)

right :p

then yes, it will fit, but with a few caveats:
pre-facelift (03-05) petrol bumpers do not fit diesel models
fog lights(if you have them) are different between pre-facelift and facelift
some trim levels were not sold with headlight washers

Haha! Thank you very much.

That’s helpful. Happily the bumper comes with the fog lights, so I think we’ll be good.

Now I just need to drive to Dewsbury to pick it up :(
