I will text him tomorrow and see if its black, if so I may get both fenders, the front bumper, and hood for a front end swap....anything else I would need? Oh ya headlights...I heard also the antifreeze bottle? Is that true?
No. You would need the window washer resiviour. Good luck on the swap, the 05-07's have grown on me, they look so much better slammed

yeah, the front end is all bolt on. personally, i like the first gen front end because of smoother curves, but if you get all the parts for the swap for cheap, why not?
they do look pretty good slammed.

With black headlights and a good front bumper, the 05-07 get my vote for best front end; it's close, though. Go for it and see what you can get.

i still think the svt has the best front end. but i do like the oem bumper for the 1.5. especially with the fogs. if the car has fogs, scoop them up (with the switch and housings) even if you won't do the conversion. they're actually worth quite a bit.

I thought so too! I was looking at my car and realized, hey I need every new part in the front end besides the passenger side fender. My drivers fender is dented, my hood has lots of rock chips and my bumper is terrible.

SVT is amazing. But itll take forever to find a bumper thats not expensive. lol

So I had a mini maintenance day. Kinda. I put my mudflap back on after it fell off by scraping on a speed bump, I reglued some weather stripping that was coming off. Oh and I started painting this lisence plate frame thing I had. Little stuff.
