    Today i was driving behind an 05 sportback that had an 8P1 rear upper bumper and a S-Line lower valance?

    Now i am very confused having been told this cannot be done!? :huh:

    If you look carefully it has the bump strips at the top, the same as mine in the pic below but a newer bottom part.

    Can someone please clarify as this would be easier for alot of people on the forum if a simple job :thumbsup:

    It will fit but iirc its a bit of a bodge, cable ties etc to secure. NHN has done it.

    Thanks for clearing that up jb0o

    I do think the newer bumper looks much better but this could be a temporary mod for some ;)

    This is true, Nigel is a perfectionist when it comes to doing things and is very very thorough, he will never leave things half done, he isn't half a job harry! He is highly recommended for his retrofitting skills.
