    [QUOTE=mattbrad30;1832226]Hi Lads Help needed

    Heres a few questions .

    How Hard is it to do the conversion ?? Very easy!
    Do the facelift lights fit or is there wiring involved ?? no wiring involved - plug and play
    Do i just need Wings, Bonnet, Bumper, Inner Arches, Fogs, Grills, - you don't need inner arches mate, just wings , bonnet, bumper with grills etc, and lights

    Also Can i fit the vxr bumper insted of the factory facelift bumper and is the xp11 bumper the same as the vxr bumper - vxr has different grills and a more aggresive looking bottom spoiler(which is part of the bumper - 2 parts).....you will also need the looms to suit the fogs!
    xp2 have different grills etc and a slightly different bottom spoiler



    Comments and advise welcome..................save up lots of pennies mate, gonna cost you best part of £1000, vxr bumpers complete are about £500.........but you can sell all your existing bits to offset

    the looms are just what you need to link your existing loom with the vxr fogs mate, normally they come with the bumper if complete mate,but about £11 each from dealers if not. if you were in a panic and couldn't find a vxr bumper, you could get an xp2 and change the bits when you can, having said that there is an xp2 on ebay at min and its £450 so may be better sourcing exactly what your after
    also if you get a vxr bumper with headlight washers you may have a bit of trouble getting to work if your car is half canbus, mine work but mine is full canbus but other members have had issues mate.
