Lightbulb advise needed plz!

hi i have a 94 wrx classic shape

what im wanting to know is changing the front of the car to a face lift model

if i buy a bonnet grill and headlights are they a direct fit like the old ones,

is it a case of just bolting them on

has anybody done this or have experience about this

cheers rickster!

for facelift you need bonnet, headlights and grill

You don't need to change the front bumper however if you are fully facelifting the front then there is a MY98-MY00 front bumper (2slat)

I believe it is all pretty much straight forward, obviously the bonnet will need aligning correctly for it to close properly. Headlights are easy to remove and refit and the grill is a 2 second job
