    Has your car got a single grill? If yes then you don't need to change your bonnet

    you need any bonnet from 2005 facelift to 2008 facelift. The 08 facelift one wont fit. If your looking at a breakers, as long as its come off a car with a big grille then you will be fine

    needs more than punctuation!! lol

    Sorry mate, but it hard to understand what you mean.

    If your car currently has a single/large grill and you want to put the 08 bumper on, you will not need a bonnet.

    A new bonnet is only needed when doing a double grill to single grill conversion ( or if you are going to attempt to fit the very latest style s3 bumper, for which you would need bonnet, wings ,lights and a large bucket of cash)
