Not much help; sorry! but following along. From what I have seen on youtube (DTE TV channel) the touran later end fits but front wings sit higher, so needs something underneath. Also a bracket for an extra attaching point on the headlights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9CYFACvtdI

Hello,
There's a fair amount involved, from what i understand, even with a mk3 facelift You will still need to weld the newer 'out rigger' pieces onto the end of the upper chassis section.

A mk3 facelift and mk4 front will involve the same amount of work, see my video below to get an idea of the work involved going for the mk4 front swap.

The 4 top 1/4 panel or guard mounts can be ordered separately as can the lower headlight mounting bracket.
Both get welded to the vehicle.

The 'outrigger' end piece cannot be ordered on its own, despite having it's own part number. It comes complete with the upper rail section, you will then need to separate and modify it to suit a retrofit.
