Facelift rear bumper on '05

I know there has been a million threads and I've read them all extensively, but I never found a definitive answer.

Can it be done? Can an 06+ rear bumper easily bolt up to an '05?

I've searched high and low for an M or Aero rear bumper but they're either quite damaged or overpriced.

If I was able to find a stock 06+ rear from a yard, would I run into any trouble? I'm tempted to try but would rather at least have a clue before buying one.

I could stare at RealOEM all day and not know for sure. 2005 and 2006 use identical diagrams and therefore I assume would be a direct match. Sourcing a 2006 specific bumper may be rather difficult though, that's why I wanted to expand to the possibility of '07+.



Has anyone ever successfully done this? I know a few have done M/Aero bumper upgrades, but how about stock? Any help or advice would be awesome.
