    Default How easy would it be to FACELIFT my car?

    I've got an 04' plate vectra dti at the moment...now how easy would this be to facelift so that it looked like an 08 plate at the front?

    Is this possible? Just want to get a few ideas/opinions....

    New bonnet, wings, headlights and bumper. Some say new slam panel. Pretty easy to do and about £500-£1000 depend on what parts you can find second hand....

    Mine only cost 50 quid but that was a case of really good luck.

    You can re-use the old front panel but it needs a touch off fettling to get the facelift front end to fit.

    Depends why you want to do it, doubtful if it makes financial sense, but most mods don't.
    If you feel you want he look and can get the parts, others have done it, and, as has been sais, think there's a How To so you can see what you're up against.
