I looked at the possibility of a kouki S14 front bumber on a S12 recently.  The curvature of it (as seen from above) looks to be too great for the S12.  USDM S14 bumber looks to be the same story.  S13 Silva front bumbers can be made to fit though.

after searching the forum for a while i came to the conclusion that silvia s13 AFTERMARKET bumper fits the best ...
however i sawn a s14 kit that was more "square" so i wondered if it could fit

I think the whole flow of the car would be too messed up by a s13 kit. Almost all of them that I have seen have been very round. Ive seen a few s14 kits that were alittle more square, as mentioned above. I think that would look MUCH better.

Get a top view of a S14 and a top view of a S12.  You'll see what I'm sayin.  Not that it couldn't be modified to fit.  I think it actually could but I don't know if it would look good.

if you look around youll find a couple guys have already adapted s13 BN kits to their s12's and they look fucking awesome

need to be modified though, but nothing too much for someone determined with some time on their hands

Nismo200sx16 had it on his car before he sold it. He's one to ask about it. It was modded however. Supra, s13, s14, prelude, mustang, etc. are some that I heard that have been modded to our cars. I'm still debating on which to go with.

Yeah S13 aftermarket bumpers have been done a number of times with very minor modification.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch
