    Has your car got a single grill? If yes then you don't need to change your bonnet

    That would be a lot easier to understand with some punctuation...

    you need any bonnet from 2005 facelift to 2008 facelift. The 08 facelift one wont fit. If your looking at a breakers, as long as its come off a car with a big grille then you will be fine

    needs more than punctuation!! lol

    Sorry mate, but it hard to understand what you mean.

    If your car currently has a single/large grill and you want to put the 08 bumper on, you will not need a bonnet.

    A new bonnet is only needed when doing a double grill to single grill conversion ( or if you are going to attempt to fit the very latest style s3 bumper, for which you would need bonnet, wings ,lights and a large bucket of cash)
