Very Easy! Yes!

2. in the wiring ie indicators foglights plug and play

Nope they have changed the connectors for fog lamps and indicators, But the old Indicators connections will fit but with some tape round it till you buy the new wiring harness. That starts just above passengers foot well.

3. arent the dimensions of the v8 a bit big will it flash straight thru.

Don’t understand??

4. are those bumpers on ebay any good?

Mine was G8!!

Something I'm going to be doing to mine quite quickly ;)

What's involved with the headlights - I'll probably get a set of projectors off eBay. Simple plug & pray?

Also, is the Rover badge a crappy one or a proper one? (i.e. not the design, but the makeup of the badge!

Welcome to the club Steve!

Rite you will need to get the new bonnet catch, £8

To change this you need to take off most of the front end to get to the underside of the slam panel.

Lights will just fit on,

Other than that just paint your side sills and your away!
Oh and some new Mats!
