Has anyone imported one of these?
It looks so much better and I can't imagine that it would be too difficult to get to work.

Headlights are different; I don't see how it would be flushed without some extensive bondo usage..

Probably have to get the full front end. Headlights, bumper, hood, fenders

I knew the lights when different. I was just hoping everything else would line up nicely.
It's so similar but looks so much better.

You'll need more than the headlights to achieve the Ceed GT look. Like Forte5 said, new bumper, lights, quarter panels because of the light and probably hood. I'd say you're looking at $5000+ easily.

This look pretty cool. I wonder if it will fit.

OK, I"m getting a little interested myself. Check this out:

"Genuine" front bumper.

Shipping might be the deal breaker however.


GAWD that's hot. Would be worth it to see other Forte owners wonder... wait, what?

It does look hot for sure but you will need the whole front end. Then pray you won't need the doors also. The headlights come up way higher than ours so yeah whole front end lol

Looking at the two at the same time it may be a close possibility. Even if there were minor changes needed it wouldn't be a big deal since it will need paint on the whole front anyways.
This is something I would look at more if I had the money to buy it all just to test lol. Just don't know if it would be a good fit for the koup body.

The 2 main areas of concern are the bottom of the pillar (looks damn close) and the fender to door area.

That front end is so much sexier. Why does everything that screams awesome end up not being available in the US.

I feel like the main distinguishing feature is the upper grill. Ours looks like a moustache.
Theirs looks mean. I don't know what it looks like. A tigers nose or something I guess.
If we only had an option to make that upper grill larger I would be happy.

Now that looks super close to ours. The headlights look just like our cars do. Now that makes me want to order that bumper when taxes come lol
