If you mean to the 2000-02 tail lights this would be major surgery. Never hear this being done before. I thought the trunks were the same. Do you mean the M trunk lid?

no the trunks are different. the 00-02 tail lights are l shaped which is post face lift. the trunks are very different. i know the panels need to be changed but im not sure because they look about the same size and curve on the outter edge. its the inside edge thats different. i really want to do the wide body fenders with the 02 tail lights. if not i will just convert all the panels and get the carbon fiber trunk. im just not sure of what all is involved.

You'll need sideskirts, rear fenders, trunk lid, rear bumper and tailights.

Not sure but you may loose your spare tire.
