    3dr, 5dr, coupe and van etc etc all use the same bonnet so grills are interchangeable

    I'll go jump off a cliff, this question is about the Mk5 so I have no clue! My answer above is valid for MK4 only!

    I believe the front bumper is also the same across all models.

    Grills for the MK5 are different. 3 door ones have got more of a curve to them than the 5 door. Not sure about twintop/estate ones, from looking, the twintop looks like a 3 door, and the estate I assume is like the 5 door, but I could be wrong.

    I personally would go with the 2xcite one, simple reason that I bought from this person last week. Grill arrived within 2 days, all nicely wrapped in bubble wrap and plastic in a box.

    I am now in the process of colour coding mine to go with my car - I would recommend that which ever one you buy, you colour code it before you put it on, otherwise its a dull black plastic, nothing like the colour in the picture.

    I would post some pictures up, but grill is at home.
