    Hi can anyone tell me if the 8P front bumper will fit straight on to my 8L?

    I've seen these on eBay and think they look silly. The shut line on the bonet is all wrong.

    Looks like a 'jelly mold and bodge it' project to me.

    the 8L front end look good on an 8L and the same for an 8P but don't mix the two.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.
