    Retrofitting a 2022 rear bumper and taillights on a 2014 mirage

    I'm thinking of getting a 2022 rear bumper and taillights to replace my 2014 bumper and taillights.
    Does anyone know if these parts are just a bolt on replacement or that they have different dimensions?
    I've seen a couple ads for 200 for the (painted) bumper and 300-350 for the taillights.

    i believed its bolt on im also planning to do this because the back of the 2022 mirage look good, but unfortunately we still dont have a 2022 hatchback here.

    Yeah, that's why I thought aswell, but the wreckers here are just really rude and just say it wont fit because of the facelift (my guess is that they don't want to be responsible if it doesn't fit).

    I think there was someone on this forum who strapped the 2020 front on a 2017 model, but I can't find the post sadly.

    So, I've done it.

    I found a rear bumper from a wrecked 2021 mirage in the exact same color as my mirage.
    I tried fitting it today and it fits perfectly:
    Name:  nieuwe achterbumper.jpg

    So now I've got to fix the little damage spot in the top right, find some reflectors (€28.50 a piece from mitsubishi themselves, I have not been able to find them cheaper) and most importantly, fix the license plate lights.

    Those lights are a good 10-15cm further back in the old model, so I guess the new ones have some extra pieces there?

    Also, does anyone know if the 2020 & up mirage has a rear bumper bar?
    My guess is yes, since it should fit very easily, but I cant find pictures or anything.

    Is the middle exhaust tip OEM or aftermarket? also is it a fake exhaust tip or is it an actual part of the exhaust?

    It is an aftermarket exhaust tip which is actually part of the exhaust, I've described it here:

    But I'm thinking of changing it, since it does not look good with the new bumper imo.
