    Ergo - if one will not fit the other, then the other will not fit the one !!

    I believe it's different headlight shape and also requires different bonnet ( and possibly wings )

    If you do a search on facelift mods or similar then you will find hundreds of threads answering the question.

    It will fit with the following parts:

    Bonnet
    Bumper
    Grille
    Fogs
    Fog surrounds
    Headlights
    Both wings
    Wing mirrors with indicators
    Some wiring for the headlights
    And a lot of money!
