    Default Facelifting....!

    How much do you reckon im looking at for the parts (bumper, wings, headlights, slam panel?) and anything else I'd need. And where would I get the correct paint from? Ive got a friend whos a sprayer so he can sort me the spraying out but just wondering on the cost of the bits..
    Or shall I stick with how it is.....?

    My partner is abandoning me to go to Zante to work for 5 months so I need something else thats not the ps3 to keep me amused!

    Thank ouu!

    You'll get the look,but do yourself a big favour go and drive one especially the SRI,you'll realise it ain't worth the bother,the handling and ride comfort is so improved you'd be better of just buying a face lift,even a grand is a lot of money just for looks,when it's the ride that's all important.
    Just took my 'new' 56 plate down to London,and that 6th gear saved me the thick end of £20 in fuel over my old 5 gear 05 plate.......PLUS it's even quieter!

    Hmmmmmmmm! Thanks for your replies...
    A grand would be the max i'd spend, couldnt justify any more than that tbh...
    But Sparky... They dont do a 3.2 facelift! And I dont see a 20 year old getting insured on a vxr... lol!
    Ill keep a look out for the parts separately then I guess. Remap and exhaust are higher up my list tho.. hehe

    Didnt realise they did ride changes to the facelift.. I thought there were just chromey bits and a diff front end lol
