    3 and 5 door rear bumper the same?

    Hi,

    I am looking for a later spec rear bumper (just need the top half) and I have been told by someone selling one locally on ebay that the 3 and 5 door rear bumper were the same fit? I was sure they were different though??

    Can anyone confirm or deny??

    Thank you.
    Wanted - a pillar covers, leather interior, rear bumper, standard head lining

    They are 100000000000% not the same.
    Check the FAQ section, I posted photos of the differences.

    The easiest way to tell the difference between the three different types is..... the edge which meets the rear lights is flat for a 3dr, whereas the 5dr has an angled bit, and the cabrio bumper looks like the 3dr bumper but has a screw hole either side of where the tailgate closes.

    5 door:





    Cabriolet:
