    Yea I just wanted to see if any of you guys knew, wasnt sure. The lights fitings etc do look different I just wanted to change front and back bumper from a 06 to the new shape. seen aftermarket front and rear led lights at decent prices and look to have improved on quality from the first few that were released the light are straight replacement. so had the bumpers left to find out about. anybody know what work is involved in changing a b7 to b8?


    thanks in advance guys
