face lift

wonder if this is poss?

i have a 2.0 ts late 2001 gtv, an was wondering if i could do a straight swap for the 2006 front end? i asume its only the bonnet an bumper that would require changing? i got quoted £1200 for these parts...does that sound steep?

cheers for the help

Re: face lift

It's possible and it's been done. Personally I prefer the phase II front to the phase III though. £1200 doesn't sound too bad, but £0 sounds better to keep the phase II, or have you bumped the front and need to replace parts anyway?

Re: face lift

My advice: Don't do it.

You have to invest money and it will depreciate your GTV big time as most Alfisti dislike the MkIII nose.

Re: face lift

Another keep it as it is vote here.

My Ideal GTV would be a 3.2 late model retro fitted with the MK2 front and 17" teledials.

the Mk3 front is just so wrong IMO.

Re: face lift

keep the P2 if possible..

P3 needs some sort of Cup style front splitter to make it look less bulbous
