    As far as I'm aware, you will have to change the bonnet for a 2005-2008 single grill bumper.

    Any rear bumper will fit as long as you get a 3 door bumper if you have a 3 door, 5 if you have a 5.

    As Wez said if you want the single grille you will need a new bonnet there no way around it. Done the single grille conversion myself.
    If you have a 3door any 3door 8P rear bumper will (BESIDES the convertible ones) and vice versa with the 5doors/sportback.
    Have a quick search both topics have been covered many times and there alot of threads going around with part numbers and prices.
    Good luck

    I hate the rear bumper too, I can't wait to remove mine for a newer one. (cough: Ash B, cough)

    Yea with the front bumper you will need just the bumper and bonnet. Or you could opt for the ABT ad on to your bumper

    If you want to facelift it to 8P3 (2008-2011), then you would need, bumper, bonnet, headlamps, wings and mirrors etc.

    There's a very cheap mod you can do in the meantime, mod your grills and bumper to 'look' like a single grill.

    There's build threads and guides galore on all options, hit the search button.
