Facelift...easy to do?

I'm giving serious consideration to replacing my grouse-damaged front bumper with a face-lifted front end, I'm aware that this would involve changing the actual bumper bit, the grille and the headlights but I was wondering what the process would be with the wiring for the DRL's?

Also I'm assuming the pre-facelift and facelift rear bumpers are a simple swap?

I'd love to change out the standard pre-lift lights for the new ones too, I guess that would require a new boot lid to do it properly though?

No answers yet? My front end is looking sorry for itself so its perhaps time for a change

Are the DRL's on the pre-facelift not optional as I've seen many where they are not working. On the facelift I know you don't get an option. Off topic but the pre-facelift rear mud guards do not fit the facelift model. The fronts do though.

All civics were are fitted with DRL's without option. I think both the front and rear bumpers were altered slightly in the facelift. I know that the front certainly was. To be honest I can't see it being a problem other than the wiring for the lights. It's unlikely it's a common thing to do though...even though the facelifted cars looks SOOOO much better!
