should be lights and front bar, maybe the bonnet. There are a lot of people who would swap the fronts for yours dude, take a look around the place (you could even ebay the old front end)

That'd look so s**t, it wouldn't match the rear at all.

I could see that looking really good. Its an expensive venture but its individual. The BA XR front end would look awesome.
