    Any advice more than welcome as I haven't started yet. Hope to tackle same over the weekend. Is there any problems with mounting the new lights matching with the original front section when you have the cut away done?
    Many Thanks

    Does anyone have a step-by-step picture guide? I don't want to go at it like a bull in a china shop and end up stumped half way through.
    I have a 2001 V6 ES 3 Dr model.Would that be more difficult as the bumper is different to the 1.8 .Does this make a difference to the upgrade or will any of the upgrade bumpers fit? Also, are clips, screws etc in the same place or what? I'm new to this forum so would appreciate any help at all.
    Thanks......
    Ian

    there is a thread on here somewhere with full instructions.

    the kit shown in wgh's post above has a big scuff / rub down on the rhs of the front bumper, be careful !
