    I am interested in updating the front of my cabrio for a S-line or facelift front bumper. Is it a direct swap? Will I need to swap the headlights etc. No clue where to start so if someone can point me in the right direction.

    Ideally like silver as don't want to be messing around with getting it painted etc.

    Bumpers from other models won't fit the cabs, the headlight and grille etc are totally different. Your only choice is aftermarket and I don't think there's too much available unfortunately.

    That is what I was looking at, would a B7 convertible bumper fit? or would I need wings, bonnet etc too?
