    firstly guys/girls hello this is my 1st of what will be many posts on here.

    I have got a '54' 2.0TDI SE 3dr that I picked up in November and love it but have got some changes on the cards. Need some advice, I have the following grill:

    And want one of these on instead:

    Now I know I will need to replace the front bumper but will I also need to replace the bonnet?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    welcome
    ye mate you will need new bonnet, otherwise bonnet lines won't match up with grill

    New bonnet, new slam panel but I think you can modify the existing one, new bumper - I would recommend an s-line front if you are going the whole hog!

    Or! If you want to on a budget, vinyl wrap the chrome around the twin grill - I did this to my 04 TDI Sport and it came out very well!

    1st of all the reinforcement bar can be adjusted with a grinder or hacksaw to fit around the newer single grill bumpers, 2nd the 53 place is double grill, so you would need a new bumper minimum for the newer grill.
