I have a 2012 Genesis 3.8 and I am constantly having to clean the carbon buildup off the rear bumper cover. Does anyone know if the 2011 bumper cover will fit the 2012 without any modification? I am led to believe that the 2011 cover has the oval exhaust pipes and does not have this problem.

The problem is not cover of exhaust pipes. It is because of GDI engine that 2012 has and 2011 doesn't.

Genesis, I have the same model, and what you need to do is give the bumper and the chrome trim a good clay job, then a polish and a wax; after this the buildup will wash off easily with each car wash! :D

That buildup is known in GDI engines, it's very normal. Changing covers, unfortunately will not make it go away.
