Post Putting 2001 Impreza headlights on a 2002 RS

I was wondering if it would be possible to take the hood, front quarter panels, grill and headlights from a 2001 Impreza L and put them on a 2002 RS?

Does anyone know if this is possible? And if it is...how much would it cost for the parts?

um, anything is possible. I read an article on a guy who put those funky new Celica lights on an Integra. It looked bizzare.

As for what you're suggesting, I don't think it's been done yet. shrug.

Cost of parts is not really your concern. Getting the bits to fit is. What makes you think anything will line up? The body/chassis is completely different. What are the odds the cowl (rear of the hood) has the same shape, that the fenders are the same length, that ANYTHING would work?

It's possible. I sincerely doubt anyone would spend the money (stupid cash) and time to get that to work. You either like the car the way it is, or you don't. If you don't, don't buy it. If you just want to "fix" the headlights, spend $2500 on the STi HID setup.

If you like 01 headlights, get an 01 like I did Any headlight conversion is possible but requires a heck of a lot of custom work to be done. Probably not worth it.

You need a metal/body man. They have to figure how to cut the fenders to keep the lines and possibly fabricate new material. If I had to guess, I say try to save about a grand for the work. I thought about going this way if my car gets wrecked or stolen.
