    I have a 2005 sportback 8PA and was planning on completely changing the front end to look like a 2013. Ive never seen it done before and have been looking into costs for new wings, bonnet, bumper etc but cannot find a cost for the new headlights. I know one of the biggest challenges is getting the door to wings right but at this stage still looking into whether it is feasible/possible and cost.

    It would cost allot, better to buy the car than try & copy the look.

    Why not change the back end as well?

    Are you factoring the higher insurance and lower resale value into your calculations?
