Im sure this is a big n00b question, but can you swap 06 tail lights into an 02?
I know people have done it to 05/04 models, but i havnt heard about 02s

umm... think the 02/03 tails are different from 04/05...
the 02/03 doesn't have the circular part that kinda dips down into ur bumper.
If u wanna fit 04/05/06 tails into a 02/03, u will need to either sheeve some of your bumper away to accomodate for that circular part, or swap a 04/05 rear bumper onto your car.

and if i am wrong, someone plz correct me ^^

If you REALLY want to do it, you can swap the bumper to the 04+ bumper....OR cut the 02 bumper where the little round light is.
