no im from the states...texas actuallly.. i just live in italy right buying the car in the states too..i was just wondering because im gonna trade my baby...RX8 because i haave a real baby on the way...i=need a bigger car without the tunnel in the middle..anyways i ask because ive seen used v for 18000 and it just seems cheaper to me at least to pay 5-6 thousand for a fron clip to get the motor pull it mod it while its out<< if i want>> then drop it in when i want ... im no tworrried about gonna have this car for a least 7-10 years...i would do all the work myself good with this shit...i just need to know if a front clip is all that is needed cuting and drilling.. just a pull and drop is the easyest and requires the least amount of added expenses
but thanks for you input... i might just end up going that way
Even if you are capable of doing the swap, I suggest you go by a dealership for a brochure, or check out specs on line and see what else a C has that you would not have with a lower (no offense) trim level. For me, it was a C or nothing.
