2007 AURA XR
Default Re: Some interesting conversion websites

Yeah, you aren't the first person to stumble upon that site:

Most of the stuff from over there you have to be careful with because they have completely different engine choices, different electronics, and different body panels. If you look, you can't directly swap the fenders on them without some metal work.

That being said, there is a chance that the brakes and suspension work, since they are all on the epsilon 2 platform, but you would have an easier time getting parts from a Saab 9-3 than shipping them over.

if you do get a set of VXR brakes sent over and find they work really well, then you might be able to work out getting a large number of the parts sent over here, which would be helpful to all of us.


And on the second site, you should notice that none of the aura pictures are of auras with the parts on them, they are only pictures of Vectras. While the parts should fit, i would hope the company selling them would have atleast taken a picture of them test-fitted before they started selling them. Plus their prices are outrageous.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
