The arches will cost you about £40 including delivery from SEL-imperial.co.uk

The ones to change are the plastic arch trims, and you need to get the sill moulding set instead.

You'll also needthe skirts, again about £40 from anyone that's selling their old ones.

After that, you'll need a morning free in your diary, a tube of sikaflex (or similar) and a couple of pop rivets.

That's what it took me, and you can see the difference it made.

The arches are at the front, your fogs are in the bumper

They're not different are they?

Actually now you mention it, I remeber a post about then differing slightly, but I can't remember the details. I think it was where the bumper meets the arch is a different angle/shape.

I haven't seen any factors parts for facelift yet either.

Smacke, give someone like selectapanel in North shields a ring and see if they do them.

Correct, you only change the bit attached to the body, but on the facelift like yours, the length is a lot shorter than previous models, so you need to find that particular trim, and not the pre-facelift version of it.

You can see here the difference in length between the two models:
