Facelift conversion?

Im sure there's some info here on pre-facelift to facelift conversion. It's a big job.

You're looking to "facelift" your car. Off the top of my head, you're going to need:
- hood
- fenders
- head lights
- lower head light trim
- M-Tech II bumper and all the fittings (wheel arch housings, brackets, supports, etc)
- Style 135m wheels
- M-Tech II rear bumper
- Shadow line trim

You're not talking cheap here.

I assume he is referring to the facelift...

In three words : "Don't do it" (could be four if you expand the contraction).

Anyway, it would be cheaper to sell your car, buy a facelifted e46, and buy your friends a round of shots to celebrate than it would to "facelift" your car.

Then you should've bought that.

in all seriousness, it will cost you alot, try to find the parts from salvage yards to save money and find ones in your color so you dont have to paint....but good luck with that. car-part.com

Oh man, you all are relentless. LOL! :lmao:

Plus you'll need, ya know, a trunk full of ZHP specific suspension and engine parts, tune, etc. Otherwise it would still just be a look-alike after all that moneys.

Is the bottom one a stock vehicle? Maybe the hood and bumper are interchangeable. Its the first thing I would look at anyway. If they are just buy them and swap. Maybe you could sell the old ones.

Jcxq 01-22-2013 07:32 AM

I thought I just needed the hood headlights fenders and bumper and radiator support to be honest o.O

Jcxq 01-22-2013 07:39 AM

Also I like the wheels I have now I don't care about the little stuff like wheels or side mirrors lol all I want is the hood bumper and headlights but I'm guessing I have to change the fenders and radiator support along with it

You can't just change the hood. His hood is for facelift version. Look carefully at your car and his. Look at the headlights, see how your headlight corner points down while the black car points up. His is called 'facelift' version 2002+.

Basically to stay cheap, without having to get fenders, hood and painting etc...

Start with the front bumper and wheels. This will be most noticeable. Then if you want change out your suspension for a drop go with that.

An everyday person won't be able to tell a difference between the hood or if your corner lights are facelift or non.
