    If its from an 8P, not an 8V, then yes, its possible. Have a search, lots of info, prices, part numbers etc.
    But basically, you need bonnet, wings, lights, bumper, un sure on crash bar.

    Dont think anyone has tried to face lift an 8P to an 8V. Being a different chassis, i cant see it being bolt on.

    You can fit upto 2009 (i think) bumper, with just a bonnet swap.
    There are some grille conversions for the old bumpers, but only to try and make it look like 8P2, not 8P3.

    They are changes in the model year (from reading on here, i had no idea either!)
    8P1 is early, pre faclift, 8P2 is facelift(2005-2009 i think) 8P3 is after that.

    Hope i got that right!

    You can fit the 04-08 bumpers onto your car and would need to change the bonnet at the same time. That includes the sline or s3. That will save you from changing your lights, wings etc
