I'm trying to purchase these front lip for my US spec car but the seller says that they are for euro bumpers. Do you think the lip would fit on a US spec car with little issues? How different are the 2 bumpers?

Its not a 'bolt on' fit.

The red car is a Euro, the blue/green is a US federal version with the bumpers extended outwards.

Dr.Grillz aka Sharif has an extensive pictorial thread with front and rear bumper comparisons between Euro Gen I (-1985) and Gen II (-91) sedan and also coupes

Also be careful I believe the fenders are wider on euro cars
