No, the shapes are completely different. Take a look at the pics and you'll see that the headlights on B5s are 2 pieces while B5.5s are one piece. As for the tailights, the B5.5s are more rounded and would require body work to fit them on a B5.

What he said. Although some have swapped a B5.5 front end onto a B5 to make a B5.25. :D

You can put B5.5 tails on a Variant pretty easily, you just have to make a small bracket because the mounts are a smidge different (4 points instead of 3)
