bonnet for tourer

Hi guys

Might sound like a daft question but does a bonnet from a 200/400 R8 fit the R8 tourer?

Cheers :S

Yes, as far as I m aware, they are all the same dimensions.

The early R8 had the full bonnet on show, as it were, & the later face-lift ones had the BMW(ish) grille fitted.

The Coupe bonnet looks nice with the 'bulge' in it, if you want the sportier look.

Thanks for all the helpful response. Mine is a 1.8 turbo so no issues with bulges so to speak. :clapping
