Good Day to all

I have been reading and searching through the forum somewhat and have not come to an exact conclusion.

The Vigo shape hilux had a number of "cosmetic" changes.
I am in the process of ficing a lux i bought fromn a salavge operator.

Now, this is an early model 05/06 however i do like the look of the later generation Vigo's with the clear lights and or legend 45 lights.

My question is, what all entailed these cosmetic changes?
Did the font fenders or the wheel arches change?

Would these light be bolt in to the fenders? as if my eyes are not fooling me, the corners of the headlights on the late models seem to look different.

Any advise and or help would be appreciated

Regards
Chris

I know the rear ones will fit 100% . As for the front , you will need to replace the bonnet , fender, grille and possibly the bumper too [IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201711 ... 611357.jpg[/IMG]

Yes the latest facelift with the wide scoop is completely different so it would mean the bonnet, front grille, front bumper and probably the fenders too.
