    Hi Guys,

    As i left my mums house after spending most of the day in the back garden i noticed some scummer had managed to hit my drivers door, luckily they hit it straight in the middle missing front and rear quarters, sills etc, i have found a door in the same colour as my car on ebay but it is off a pre-facelift coupe door, so my question is; are al the fixtures and fittings the same? is it identicle, or is there some subtle difference BM made on the facelift doors?

    Thanks in advance

    The only difference from non-face lift to facelift are:

    - Grills that stand proud on the nosecone
    - Smaller side repeaters
    - Some bobbles on the headlights (never seen myself tbh)

    Door should be a staright swap

    If you're stuck for paint, try North East Factors. They are based in Newcastle but do deliver. I managed to get the right paint for mine in rattle cans and it was a great match. And I got a pig of colour, it's the Moreagrun green or however it's spelt.
