    Why are the 8P 2004-2008 front bumpers so expensive compared to the 2009 onwards one?

    I have been looking to upgrade my front and have noticed a huge difference in price.

    Why is this?

    Simple. They are harder to find so the price is naturally higher. Supply and demand etc etc.

    You would think that they would be easier to find considering they have been available longer though.

    I could get a 2009-onwards bumper for 50-80 quid but the 2004-2008 is 170+, and thats in pretty bad condition.

    Because every one and his dog wants to facelift the double grill 8P.
    A lot more than face lift it to post 2009.

    So is the dog meant to be the women (B***h) or... lol joke. Never heard of that saying before. Yeah I agree with everyone else, it's because they are so easy and straight forward to just plug and play. Same as MY11 rear lights, the price just keeps raising.
