How hard is it to?

Post by Ricey » Fri Apr 17, 2009 11:25 am

Change the tail lights from my pre facelift to the facelift rear lights? I much prefer them to mine but is it more hassle than its worth or is it just covers/units?

new bumpers involved as is new wiring! Big job for little if any gain! The orginals are best IMHO as they are more designed for effect than price!

I'm with pady on this one. You need a facelift cover which will therefore need a respray. Lights themselves not only need wiring but an LCM recode

Personally I think the prefacelift, especially some of the alternative 'white spot' styles are much better than the new style.

Wow! Didn't think it was that hard! :S Thought it would be the same as like rears on a saxo mk1 and mk2. Oh well :( Where can I get hold of the prefacelift rears with white spots?

There's nothing wrong with a late model nicely modded Saxo
