Mk6 with a mk7 front end

I really love the front end of a mk7 vs a mk6. It's so more aggressive. But with the style comes with price. I'm not in the market for a mk7 but I can afford some cosmetic mods. Could you possibly put mk7 fenders, hood, headlights, bumper, grille on a mk6?

Won’t match with the rest of the MK6 anyways. I wouldn’t waste $$ trying. Maybe just me though.

I would be very surprised if anything matched up. It’s an entirely different platform.

It would literally be cheaper to trade in your Mk6 for a Mk7 than trying to graft on a Mk7 front end to your current car. Different platform, different electronics, etc.

there are the osram mk7 look headlights for the mk6 that some people on here already have, and if you just find a bumper that looks the same then you're set. it'd be a lot easier/cheaper to go that route than actually getting a mk7 front clip and putting it on

I've seen this online somewhere. Mk7R bumper looks nice on the Jetta.
