    ive got a 54 plate tdi thats having the big grille conversion done and im just wondering if the 09 bonnet will go with an earlier bumper, grille and headlights? just asking as ive found an 09 bonnet at resonable money and cant find another from an earlier model

    cheers people

    It a fair bit of work to do. PS5ND on here is currently doing a facelift conversion, and I believe Kensie on here has also.

    Good luck if you do it :)

    Thats because all the 09 ones are still under warranty and too new to be tinkering with yourself. If I had an 09 and smashed it, theres no way i'd be buying ebay stuff to fix it!

    Also I think that modt people are aware its a complete front refit to change to 09 spec so are a bit scared to take the job on!

    or a bit stupid and take it on anyway :)

    its not that bad a conversion by the looks of things but i will be fitting bodywork this weekend with a stroke of luck

    also fyi for everyone its more than just bonnet bumper and wings, you also need the raiator surround and light fixtures and ill find out if more is required soon
