    If it includes bonnet, wings and bumper, then that's not too bad but don't forget they'd need painting too, unless you're lucky to have the same colour car (obviously)...

    Think you can get it cheaper albeit £1000ish but not a 100%. Someone on here done a conversion 3 years ago and it was £1500 all in including getting them painted but.

    Oh, also don't forget the VXR had xenon headlights as standard. If it's got the optional AFL with the moveable headlights then you'll need to find some stanard ones too...

    Will start collecting the parts and get them painted after xmas.
