    A lot. All of the mounting flanges as well as the bodylines won't fit. It also might be too wide, or even worse, too narrow.

    Putting a body kit thats not made for your car is the best way to make your car look like a complete piece of shit. Dont do it.

    too much work to make it fit, better off getting a kit designed for your car

    Have you seen a 2000 Civic? It's a completely different car than your 2001; your car was the first year for the 7th-gen body style. I doubt any part of that kit would fit your car; if it did it would be because of pure luck and nothing else...

    And you'd probably spend more money and time on trying to cut it and mold and fit it to your car then you would on just buying a kit made for your 2001. I'd say don't do it!
