Change the whole front clip. The hood, fenders, lights, bumper. I think the crash bar is different also if Im not mistaken. Its been done for several different years/swaps. I dont know how much all that work/paint/parts would cost. But best bet would be to look for the body style you want and get it.
It was a midyear 03 change, not a midyear 04 change.
Yup. Late 03=BA for me!!! I like the low hood and the high fenders of the 03. Also how the face (front of the car) matches the dash board.
In 04 they put the speedometer in the wrong place and the seats are too wide for my narrow butt. The "face" doesn't match anything and don't get me started on the snow shovel hood scoop. Its square and has sharp lines when the rest of the car is round and curvy.
Sorry to hate they just look wonkie to me. (not that a bugeye doesn't look wonkie to some).
I always liked the 06/07 Very mean looking Nice headlights.
The sensation is as hard to forget as it is to ignore!!!
