rear bumper will, but it hasnt the number plate light in the bumper, you might find useing a vp number plate/boot guarnish of a vp and running the number plate wires to that
or fit the number plate light in the vp bumper

there is no differance in the rear pannels between a vn and vp


the front is a little different, as you wont be able to use a vp grille, as the headlights are different

compared to the vp headlights, the vn headlights come further forward at the bottom of the lights and there is a different angle between vn and vn headlights in the grill area

apart from that the front bar will fit

hope this info helps

VP fits VN, same basic car (VP was the facelift)

- If you fit the front bar, then you need to get a VP grille, the VN one won't look the part. VP Calais / SS are also different front bars from Executives.
- Also the VP guards had the longer indicator lights, which means different head lights to make it all suit. (because VN/VQ had square headlights, the VP's had curved head lights)

- Rear BAR, yes the number plate light is not there as the rear garnish holds the lights, same as vr/vs. If you got a VQ rear bar, the bar has a seperate section for number plate. Then you could fit a VQ rear garnish.

In a nutshell, if you got a donor car, you can bolt the parts on without any major mods.
If you don't have a donor car, then it might start getting expencive buying all the extra's to make it look rite.

Couple of corrections, VP Grill wont work with VN Headlights (seen a mates car with VP SS bumper, but retained the VN grill, because he didn't want VP lights)

ALL VP bumpers are identicle. SS's just have holes cut for spotlights. You can turn an Exec bar into an SS bar by cutting 10cm of the bar away.

Calais, Exec, SS, all the same.



Along with changing bumpers, depending what side moulds you choose, the strips wont line up (if you have a VN Berlina or Calais) as the VN stripe is higher on the mould/bar than VP.
