2017 Headlights and Bumper on '13-'16 BRZ Conversion

I have yet to come across a thread about this. Has anyone done the 2017 BRZ front bumper + headlights to the 2013-2016 generation of the BRZ or plan to?

Thanks

They aren't out yet.

But they did use '16s with the '17 parts for demo models.

all that work for a conversion just trade your old BRZ for the new one and get Brembos for only 3k extra

Was the conversion plug and play or was there new wiring involved?

Based on the write up everything is plug and play except for the wiring.

The L on the back means it goes on the left. Vehicle left, not your left.

It just seemed like the 17 bumper and lights were more round and sleek, my 16 bumper and lights were sort of boxy.
