    Different.

    Facelift grills have got a silver trim going round the bottom of all the slats, and each slat has got chrome on the edges of it.

    Pre was 2004 to late 2006, early 2007

    Facelift was 2007 to 2010

    The facelift front bumper was made to be pointier than the pre-facelift to try and tie in with the bumper on the sporthatches... so the grille was made pointier to follow the line of the bumper...

    So the grilles and splitters are different between the pre-facelift and facelift models...

    And unrelated, but I know who you are now mgodden1989 I didn't recognise the username, but recognise the car

    Me and low3sy have disscussed this on several occassions, as he said there like rocking horse thingy. There are plenty around for the pre facelift.
    I hope to get the irmy one in the next month or so. I know what will happen though, soon as I get it they will drop the price to match the pre facelift version..
