    From memory I dont think its a straight swap with the phase 2 panels (remember trying to fit a phase 1 to my phase 2 years ago).

    You can see some of the clips in this picture here:

    Think there was a thread on Mig if you do a search, as I was looking to fit it too but didn't get round to it.

    I did this to mine and didn't use any clips as I was unsure if I would need to remove it one day.

    The boot lock holds it on mostly aswell as the number plate screws. With plenty of padding behind (I used dynamat style stuff - to prevent rattling/scratching to paint), and I also used black insulating tape along the end sides (next to the lights) which kept the ends in fine and you could hardly notice it.

    Hope that helps.
