way i see it is that you could pick up a pre-facelift mabey with small front end damage for handy money sell what ever parts you can, buy the facelift parts and end up with a far better looking car for half the price.

what you think

The facelift looks even worse than the original though.

I meant the process rather than the over all product, however I have no problem with people making purely aesthetic mod's to their cars as long as it's not along the lines of a MASSIVE body kit.

Hi OP, not sure if this is what you're looking for but here is a 1995 Corolla with that newer front on it, I'm not actually sure what it really is to be honest but I'd be inerested in what other people have to say about it.
