Will a new 8p3 s line diffuser fit a 8p2 s line sport back?

    Hi all, yesterday I purchased a 2006 s line sport back and im pretty happy with it. However the rear tow hook is missing as you can see:

    Now a quick question. Rather than buying a new tow hook as I would probably be looking into doing this anyway would this diffuser fit on my sport back? If it does is it an easy straight swap or will I need a few other parts to fit and maybe someone to fit it?

    Here is my s line sport back with the missing tow hook cover.

    The diffuser that you have linked to won't fit your bumper unfortunately. For linked diffuser to fit, you'd need an 8P3 bumper

    Hard to explain but the 8P2 bumpers have both valance and diffuser, see your picture and the line running across length of bumper just above diffuser. Where as the 8P3 bumpers just have the diffuser, see linked picture that doesn't have the line.

    Oh yeh I see it now! Ahh man that is so annoying! the diffuser looks the same shape and everything how frustrating. Thanks for that though, looks like I will be buying a new tow hook cover then

    You could always just buy the s3 rear valance and fit that!

    Thanks for that advise! I will look into getting one if they are not to pricey to purchase and spray
