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

    cheers

    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
