Anything possible. If you have the money to reshape and weld the rear end then go for it. Other words in plain terms, no its not a bolt on swap.

If you look at the picture it has the rear bumper and trunk, so if it was a direct fit it would flow.

A good body man could probably do this. You would need to replace rear fender tips, trunk lid and rear bumper cover. Also you would need to change th e rear tail harness because some wires are rerouted to the trunk via a different path.

By the way I agree with you it would give your car a real unique look for a sedan. You might even set a trend.

i know i wish it was bolt on, it would make for a nice sedan IMO, but the trunk on sedan has a slight slant on it and the coupe is straight down :(

if i have the money and it will look mint i might get it priced this summer! then decide to go through with it or not and yes if only they were bolt on, probably many others would have done it already

I dont think you are going to want to have this priced at a shop. I'd start with small time and friends cuz it's gonna be EXPENSIVE!
