    Thats great Matty.. I cant wait for our FL to look like that, only a couple of bits to get & I can crack on with it.
    Oh the top rear lights, do I have to change them? are they different because they look the same on both the early & 04 on spec?
    Thanks Ian.

    Finished mine today :)
    It took about 2 weeks because I could only spend a hour or so on it here & there after work or at weekends. Quite easy to do rearly & if I can do it anyone can, I'm pleased with the results.
    I have put some piccys on here:

    Oh I thought it would be worth spending out on a old plate so no one will be able to tell how old it is. It is a 99 'V' Model.

    Ian...I have an 03 1.8 petrol and I quite fancy the idea of the facelift front.

    Could you give me an idea of overall cost for the parts and what I need. Thanks in advance

    Hi Gav
    All in all it cost just under £650 & that included spraying bumpers. As yours is an 03 you will not have to pay out for black arches so you can take £100 of that figure.

    Mad hat.. I had that all done last yr mate, thats the reason I have done the facelift & we are keeping the car for a while. The Mrs wanted to get a newer one but as I spent nearly a bag of sand on the thing I didnt want to risk getting a newer one & then having to spend out it all again on VCU etc :)

    I snipped the wires out of the old lamps (writing down what went where), plugged them in & used a test lamp to get the correct lights working then connected the wires to the new lamps. The headlamp adjuster is easy (2 wires) & indicators are easy (2 wires)

    HI Procare,

    Did you ever manage to sort out the wiring issue following your facelift conversion. I'm attempting the same and am experiencing the same problem re indicators illuminating when main beam is on. Any advise would be appreciated - thanks Chris
