Front crash bar / bumper

Are they interchangeable between the cabriolet/tourer and standard car? The phase 2 ones all look the same but have different part codes. Anyone know what the difference(s) are?

Pretty sure they are, think its only the coupe ones with the castellated nuts that are different

Thanks. Not sure, but the differences might be if there are full cut-outs for the fog lights or sculpted air vents. Which begs the question - do the sculpted air vents snap out or cut out so you can fit fogs, or the stone-guard bezels?

With the bumper removed, you can see the outline of the cut that needs to be made if fitting fog lamps. The fog lamp surround and diesel intercooler intake bezel is the same part :)
when I fitted front fog lamps to my car, I was lucky enough to find a diesel front bumper in good condition/the right colour and it was just a case of removing the mesh then securing the lamps in place.
