Re: Front end, Replacement
Pre-facelift parts would most likely fit, if you are replacing the entire front-end, but in all honesty, I'd use the facelifted items as not only will they be guaranteed to fit, the car's value won't suffer as a result.
I presume this is a result of a collision?
If so, take reference measurements to ensure that the chassis and subframe haven't deformed as a result of the impact.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
