The hood looks like it would fit, but the front bumper, lights, and cutouts 
on the front fenders are wrong, as well as the core support, including room 
for the intercooler, etc.  To do this, you really need the front clip (outer 
fenders, core support, bumper, hood) and some custom work to fit intercooler, 
etc.  Would look quite sharp, but could be very pricey.  I've pics from 
someone in Germany who's done just this (as well as a swap on the rear 
fenders, etc.).
