    will a later single grill bumper fit on my early twin grill car

    probably been asked a million times before but saves me hunting.my grills cracked anyway and bumper has chips so may get later type if fits and get painted instead

    It won't.
    You can get the 8P2 single grill on when you replace the bumper and the bonnet.

    Single Grill Conversion Done....V6 S3 Hybrid!!! pic heavy

    took me about 60seconds.. I presume this is what you want. The proceedure is similar for all single grill fronts till the 8P3 facelift..

    Bonnets are slightly different, the price difference is minimal.

    Third picture down on the first link in my second post shows why you have to change bonnet.. Its a silver bonnet with a red bumper..
