Toying with replacing my 8th gen with a 9th gen but can only afford a prefacelift. Is it possible to retrofit the facelift rear lights and bumpers....new ones are so much nicer on the sport etc.
I've asked this before but never really go anywhere. In principal it should be straight forward. I see no reason why the rear bumper wouldnt just be a straight swap for a facelift one. The rear lights might be a bit different though, depending on the loom for the rear lights.
The main issue with the 9th gen is that all the parts diagrams etc. are shrouded in mystery, so until you have the old part off and new available, you won't know if all the fixings are the same:- In practice I don't see why they would have changed, but it would be a PITA if it didn't fit.
