    probably, but you would probably need the front wings as well so it will get pricey

    Been done to death on here .. do a search :smile:

    Wings and arch liners at a minimum to fit. Then your wheels will look completely hilariously lost as it's a good inch or so wider than the 1.2 ...

    Good luck :wink:

    You will need;

    Front bumper
    Arch liners
    Wings
    Side skirts
    25mm spacers

    But the front bumper can be made to fit the non sport wings with a bit of work.

    is it possible just to take my front bumper off and replace it with the 172 bumper? just a straight swap?

    not a straight swap. the sport bumper is wider which is why youll need the wings.

    you may be able to make it fit with sanding the corners and filling any gaps... im not sure how this would work on the ph1 but ive done it to the ph2 bumper if you wanna check my thread for some ideas... andyrg is selling a ph1 sport front end... if youre interested, pm him

    Nope, the sport front bumper is bigger.

    You can "make" it fit though.

    it will be a straight swap if you get the wings too.
    your arch liners wont fit the sport bumper and sport wings though.
    i know yours is the one before mine, i was trying to show the work that goes into making it fit (not a lot lol).. yeah you do need the wings if you dont wanna force the bumper to fit

    the arch liners bolt onto your arches and bumper and stop dust/mud/s**t getting into your car... they can be left off but its up to you whether you wanna get them or not. ive left the front bit of the arch liner out for the time being

    where are you from?

    if they need spraying then condition doesnt matter. no point buying good ones if there getting sprayed anyway

    wings sound alright but god knows what hes on about with the bumper :confused: ask for more info ? bumper seems very cheap
