Front Bumper 2005 '55' Clio

I had a little bump through a hedge in my lovely clio. It is a 2005 plate dynamique one and I need to replace my front bumper. I have had a look around but alot of the front bumpers that are of the same shape but different age have a different grill to that on mine. Does anyone know if a 2003/04 front bumper from a dynamique is the same as that on a 2005/55 plate? I suspect that due to the transition from my shape to the newer one, the bumper may have been revamped before the newest model. I haven't had my clio long so I am a bit of a novice and desperately trying to get the part to re-spray it. Can anyone guide me into the right direction and maybe give me a heads up on what I should be looking for?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Front Bumper 2005 '55' Clio

Hi there and welcome.

I am a SMART repairer, and although I'm not looking for business, I'm pretty sure hedge damage won't have rendered the bumper unrepairable.

Is there any chance you can post a few pics of the damage?

I enclose a 'before & after' pic showing how even 'dented' plastic can be brought back into shape.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
