    It will depend on whether your 5 door is a sport hatch or not?

    sporthatch is the 3door
    normal hatchback is 5door.

    You can use 3door bumpers on a 5door and vise versa but you have to change over something to do with the crash bar (or bit infront of that) so not really worth it.

    Why not just get the XP kit from a 5door and bond it onto your bumper?

    why not really worth it? the bit you are talking about on the crash bar is only about £22 from vaux, an held on with a few pop rivets, just a platic bumper guide, well worth it IMO, as the sporthatch front looks alot sportier than the 5 door. I have the sporthatch front on my 5 door.
