Personally, mate I think they are all hideous but if I had to then it would be No 1, but only if it was life or death !!!
You can get a .:R bumper for the Bora, which doesn't look too bad, but personally I'm not a huge fan of the car itself, how about something original like a Golf fronted Bora, with a R32 bumper. The 'GoR32', but again anything with a .:R bumper IMO should have the necessary Gee Gee's, not to look a prat at the lights !!!
Its not a kit you would have to mod the whole front end a la, the very few Bora's (Bora fronted Golfs), but obviously the other way round, I imagine it would be quite a job and not cheap, but quite original.
As for the .:R bumper, you can buy them off the shelf to fit the Bora (I dont remember where I saw one !!Doh), then a set of side skirts and a smoothed rear end, job done.
One idea would be to find someone who wants a Bora, then do a swap with the salvagable parts, cheaper for both parties.
I like you thinking and over the weekend i was giving it quite a lot of thought, and i do like the idea of a golf front end on a bora, but where to find the parts and the cost could be a deciding factor. Has anyone done this , and where did you get the parts, any pics of any conversions. I am getting quite excited about all this now ....sad is'nt it .
