    I would imagine about a grand to convert, at the most, Some parts can be sourced cheaper bringing the cost down. I recall someone on here doing a facelift swap but can't find the thread.

    The facelift parts you would need are the wings, bonnet, bumper, headlights, slam panel, manual bonnet stay (not gas as the facelift bonnet is lighter), facelift grilles (top and mouth), foglights, fog light surrounds.

    I believe from what some people have done the total cost has lay between £900 - £1,500.

    Again it all depends on the parts you are looking for - which I presume would be VXR?

    Really? I though the original Vec C one was made of Aluminium?

    Sorry to go off topic but I don't really understand why people want to change there cars to the facelift one anyway. IMO the original Vec C has an "Original" face, compared to the facelift model that looks like its trying to fit in with the other Euro boxes on the road.

    I've heard a few people say but never found a reason to stick magnets to my bonnet.

    Yea just double checked, mines defiantly Aluminium. Reason for gas strut removal was most likely cost cutting.

    The bonnet would fold if the gas strut was on the facelifts.
