      The Odyssey front on the 240 is awesome.

      My neighbor has a Magnum with a Chrysler 300 front end. Must been easy too since they came in same color. its funny because the car is otherwise stock so it just looks like it came from europe.

      I like front end conversions only when they fit the styling of the car nicely. The trans-am one might be nicely done but it looks horrible, as do the Merc one.

      I saw one once too. I was WTF for a while until I realized it was a magnum.

      Here's a good front end conversion. But you may want to double bag it

      I don't think the stock golf front end works well, but the R32 does with some work on the rest of the car to make it all flow.
      In for what could be an awesome thread of swaps.

      I think both of them can work quite well

      Just needs a lot of supporting mods which I didn't have the money for.

      The Golf/GTI definitely comes out much better on that swap.

      For a mkIV Jetta front? I think there is alot of fab involved. Correct me if I am wrong though.

      The mkIII looks great though.

      I meant MKIV and yeah I've heard it does involve a lot of work as well.
      Come to think of it, I've never seen a MKIII Jetta one done and that does look nice.

      There is a local guy that has a 2001-ish F-150 with a 2005 and up front clip. I'll try and snap a pic. I think it looks pretty good.

      I like it, but it's unfortunate the 92-X's front fenders don't match the WRX/Impreza Sedan's rear fenders.

      All GD sedans have the larger boxed front and rear fenders, but all GD wagons (and the wagon-only 92-X) have narrow ones.

      pretty cool for show...

      I guesss these came stock like this in europe?

      the qx56 frontend looks alot better on the titan, already posted but this is much better.
      One frontend conversion i dont get is when a b6 wants to upgrade to a b7.
