I was looking around online for an OEM grille and ran across some replacement bumpers, and I decided I really like the look of the new 08-09 front bumper. I haven't had the opportunity to have an 05-07 next to an 08 but from pics it doesn't look like there is a huge difference, just minor cosmetic changes. So would an 08 bumper fit on an 05? I am very interested if so: Even if it requires a little body work/customizing as my uncle owns his own auto shop and could help me out if needed. Let me know what you guys think...I found an 08 bumper for $100 (needs a repaint and has very minor rubbing on one side) and if it is even remotely possible I am down with giving it a go. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 08 S40 bumper fit on an 05-07? (carreragt7)

No it will not. <p>You could go custom but it will cost you money and a lot of work!

The headlights are shaped differntly (like the S80) so the fenders and lights would have to be replaced as well. You're much better off getting an aftermarket body kit.
