    thank you.
    I know about that part. I was asking about the lower valance portion.

    The opening for the grill is different.

    Standard is wider since the grill is wider and the parking lamps are on the valance

    The curve below the light is diff
    A lower valance for rs won’t fit right on non rs

    Wonder if anyone has ever tried. I asked these questions a few years ago because you can visually see some differences in the spoilers. Tha RS looks more aggressive. It would be cool if someone had both and were able to show the differences on both cars.
