    the bumpers and skirts will go straight on and are dead easy.... the display change can be done but it's not quite so easy, and unless you have the correct right hand stalk with the toggle buttons you'll start to hit difficulties...

    i'd leave it be, and just concentrate on the styling mods......

    the bumpers are an easy swap, and when you do the sideskirts, you just need to get 20 more little plastic rivets from VX ( 20p each) and the whole lot can be done in a hour....

    Save your money, and get a better spec car next time, the insurance wont jump cos it's got a sunroof, so as long as you stay in the engine bracket you shouldn't see much of an increase.

    You'll never be happy with it, I get raised eyebrows as to why I buy upspec cars for my job, but I like the toys and the better feel of the car overall, save your money for something better, you will end up spending 2k on mods and the car will still not look as good as say a 55 SRi 1.8.

    Probably a 120 CDTi SRi would be your best option.
