    Right, just been looking on here to find the answer to my question but cant find a specific yes or no.
    I have a 2005 S-Line (see pic below) with the sport style bumpers as the S-Line bumpers didnt come in until 06 i believe.
    My question is, can i just swap the diffuser/valance (whar ever you want to call it) from the one in the picture below which i currently have to the 06 onwards S-Line diffuser/valance?
    I.e is it a direct swap or do i need the 06 onwards S-Line rear bumper?

    I am in the process of converting my 05 S-Line to the face lift 06 version S-Line and bumpers, i believe you have to change the whole rear bumper and not just the diffuser like you have.. The bumper isn't expensive second hand, they do crop up on ebay, you have the expensive part, the diffuser.

    Yeah ideally you need the bumper for it to look perfect but it can be fitted to the older bumper, it just needs some if the clips trimming to make it fit! A few people on here have managed it

    It's an audi grill, not cheap but wanted to stay OEM. I'll dig all the part numbers out tomorrow if you want them.
    I took the bumper off to fit the grill.
