how difficult would it be to convert 2007 compass front fascia to 2011

Hi, I love the new front fascia on 2011 so I was wondering, would it be possible to convert the front fascia on a 2007 model to a 2011 model.

Looking at dimensions, everything looks similar apart from the front and hood. How much of an expense would it be?

Well first, welcome to the forum, since I see you're new here. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer to that question and while I won't say it's impossible, I couldn't even venture a guess as to how much work/money it would take. Might just be worth it to consider trading for a 2011.

Thanks for your response.

I am thinking on those terms as well. Trade in will set me back by around 8k-12k. If changing the fascia costs me about 1k-2k, I wouldnt mind it (that much).

Also in this age, it seems reasonable to go for an electric (gas around >4)

The fenders and hood are likely different not to mention the lights etc. That means the wiring for the lights. You are also looking at Chrysler body parts prices which are amongst the highest in the industry. Get a 2011 or settle for the existing one you have. I quite like the big round headlights and they throw a great beam on the road. Anyway I would never even think of that kinda of mod.
