few questions for a B7 facelift conversion on a B6 cabriolet, any help appreciated
im planning on doing a b7 facelift to my b6 3.0 cabriotlet, iv checked many forums and threads and cant find the answers to the following questions, any help would be appreciated
to my understanding i will need to change both wings, bonnet, headlights, front panel and bumper.... anything im missing?
- will saloon b7 wings fit a b6 cabriolet or do they have to be from a b7 cabriolet?
- will any b7 front panel fit my b6 or will it have to be a specific engine size?
- does the bonnet have to be from a b7 cabriolet or will a saloon one fit?
i think thats about it, i have read the b7 facelift threads and they do not have the answer to these questions, and i do not want to buy a hofele kit.
also if any of you have any b7 parts i could use let me know as iv not started buying yet.
HelP!! Someone!! Need Advise!!!
Hi all I'm new to this but I decided after reading on the forum to upgrade my b6 cab to the newer b7, I bought all the parts that were advised on the forum then took the brave decision to strip the whole front end off my car. My plan was to take my car to a friends garage and have him replace the timing belts ect... At the same time. Long story short eventually striped my cars front end had the belts changed then started process of rebuild using genuine parts from b7 cabs ( only part that was copy was the front slam panel) after getting my car kinda together I relised the wings fitted the bonnet fitted but the bumper didn't, although genuine part. I eventually drove my car home from the garage nearly on tears as I thought I had wrecked it... Again long story short, I was going on holiday and decided to put my car into local body shop as if anyone could get it to look right they could.... It needs all resprayed the original silver but I got a call today saying they need £450 worth of parts to get the car to come together, they say parts are bolts and fog lights + cover plates + light holders for the new lights as they are not sitting on the new slam panel..... I thought this was really expensive and need advise??????? What to do??? I know the car looks better now as he's kinda got it looking right, but says it won't be right till all parts are bought. Also HELP NEEDED with the lights themselves, I basically swapped them over and as they are plug n play I thought they would work fine, they Don't ! Needs some kind of wiring loom as all sorts of faults are flashing on dash.... HELP. final question of advise... Can I fit an HID LIGHTkit to these b7 lights??? I bought one but don't want to mess my car up any further. Please Help Advise Experts!!! thankyou!!
