    anyhting can be done, it just depends how much money you have, or whether you have the balls to take a grinder and welder to your car.

    If you're asking if there's a quick fix then the answer is no.

    You know the one

    Enquire within

    afterburners like mentioned above should be straight forward to modify - just be a case of cutting away/reshaping the plastic housing to fit the coupe body.... doing the same to standard lights would be too much of a ball ache IMO as its not just the plastic surround youd need to cut/shut but the actual lenses themselves.

    The lights on a Hatch are are bit fatter and you'll struggle. You can DIY job your lights like me,



    I did want these ones but they are like rocking horse sh*t to get hold of,



    My mate bought some quad conversions, http://www.quadconversions.com/, rear lights for his Fiesta a few years back and the owner came to deliver them, i asked if he fabricate some up and he said yeah but at around £300 to £350 but dont bank me on that.

    if they are from a saloon then yes they will fit.
    coupe/cab/saloon use the same lights...

    then again web translators can sometimes kick up wrong results so might be worth checking first.
