I'm confused. Why do you say the SE has a lower front end? Ground clearance is the same as far as i can tell.

I have also made a note about that "Fat Lip" that some models have and others don't. Someone mentioned it was a Canada/USA thing but I still can't figure out which models and years have it and what don't.
I have a 2017 SE without the fat lip bottom pc. I would also like to know if it's possible.

Just letting you guys know but I have the 2016 SE and that lower front lip (silver thingy) is really hard to find because of its limited availability and it breaks easily too :D

Can it be a Hybrid/non-Hybrid thing? It's not on the "add-ons"-list
Here's my hybrid:

Remi, it struck me while looking at the photo of your RAV4, there's almost no color there. If it weren't for the blue hose reel in the background, it might as well have been a black & white photo. The RAV4's here in N. America have amber lenses on the turn signals, parking lights, and side marker lights in the front.

In Norway/Europe it's just the blinker lightbulb that's amber, and no sidemarker :) (caught in a blink in picture below, with the DRL on)
Yes, but here the lenses are amber, and the bulb is clear.

I have tried it, ordered the lower bumper valance (chin) but the lower grille does not fit since i have an LE. And there is a gap on the underside between the valance and the radiator/engine splash shield. Anyone know the part number for this part that fills the gap?

Had to get this part: couldn’t find an aftermarket one so I ordered an OEM part from toyota.

@Budoy Thank you! I'm following your other post, I'll keep you guys posted. I ordered the 4 parts involved in the process. 3 aftermarket and this one OEM.

I used the same seller than you... How was the quality, any noticeable difference between OEM and Aftermarket ABS plastic quality?

Thanks in advance.

The plastic looked really good. I just washed my car and applied dressing on it. The aftermarket parts looks better than the OEM in my opinion. Smoother and with a bit of sheen. The tabs that connect the aftermarket grille and the lower bumper valance to the bumper itself though are a bit loose. I did apply small zipties to each tab to make them really secure. Other than that its on the spot!

Thank you, @Budoy I really appreciate your support on this project!

If you are still interested on the speakers upgrade, please take a look at my post. I'll be adding pictures soon.
