Main difference is the grill and front bumper. But the lights are a bit bigger also and the bonnet vents are different. You can get all the bits ready painted from DR Motorsports. Price aint bad either.

I would personally just fit a later shape bumper and a new grill that looks like the later shape or a mesh one. Saves any major grief, also alot of money.

I think the older bumper is better looking than the facelift one anyway. Its to square looking. I wouldnt bother wasting 350 on a new bumper whats the point. Just get a good splitter and a new grill and spend your money on something more worth while..

I prefer the newer front bumper, i would like a P1 front. to be honest. The older lamps don't bother me to much but i would like the newer front.
