Hey guys, I didn't see any posts on Jdm spats that answered my question so I'm posting here.

I recently purchased JDM spats from a member on here and noticed that the left hand side and the right hand side aren't mirror copies of eachother. I am assuming this is because of the exhaust. I have not tried to mount them so I guess it could become more apparent when I do this.
OR I was thinking it is maybe because the Jdm bumpers are shaped differently than USDM bumpers.

Can anyone confirm this for me please?
Thanks
KC

Spats aren't made for usdm bumper. There are tons of diy's on installing the rear spats. All tell you how to mount them onto a usdm bumper and usually expain pretty thoroughly. Go mount them and enjoy them!!

I didn't notice any major differences when I installed mine, but then again I wasn't really looking for differences between the two.

My USDM bumper already had holes where the spats go from a previous owner, so I just zip tied the spats to the bumper and called it a day. Despite being JDM spats on a USDM bumper, they seem to fit decently enough.

Ok thanks guys, I appreciate the responses.
I have been looking at a lot of pics and I think they are all consistent. One end is bigger and the other is smaller.
