Help Alfa 147 2003 change to the Facelift 2005

Hi everybody,

Now i found on my local garage an Alfa 147 2005 with facelift which he sells its parts.

now i have an Alfa 147 non facelift model so the first model and i would like to buy its front facelift and put it in my alfa...

Would that work ? without any problems ?

my thoughts was buy its:

front Bumper
both headlights
Front hood
and side front bumpers

Please correct me if i am wrong or if it is even possible to do so !
Thank you

Yes you can do it. But you basically need all the front end.
As you've lsited really. Might have to change some of the wiring.

To switch a 156 to the facelift you also need the slam-panel, don't know if the 147 does too.

Why not just buy a proper facelift version? I don't know the system in Holland but I expect the vehicle documents for a 2003 model and the front of a 2005 model will confuse and maybe put off potential buyers (if you decide to sell it) and there may be insurance issues as you may have been deemed to modified it?
