    Does any one know if a 2009 bonnet will fit a 53plate car with the big grill front bumper fitted?

    cheers

    Sorry but how do you have the front bumper fitted without the new bonnet? Do you have any pictures?

    Which facelift are you doing, the 05-08... or the 09 onwards? The 09 onwards wont work with the 05-08 there completely diff... and again the split grill 03-05 bonnet dosnt work with either

    kinda off topic from your bonnet needed but from what i have been told the 8p3 bonnet and 8p1 bonnet are exactly the same bonnet with the same part number wether thats true or not i dont know, what i do know is the 8p3 got bigger around the grill again like the 8p1.

    complete lie

    the 8P3 bonnet is much more sculpted, and the headlamps are a totally different shape. also the wings of the 8P3 are longer, so the bonnet/wing shutlines wouldn't match up at all
