Mk5 bonnet does 5dr fit 3dr?
« on: May 05, 2022, 01:11:13 pm »
Same as title, had a Google but nothing really pops up. Will a standard 5 door fit a 3dr R32? And will it go in the boot of a mk5  :happy2:

Bonnets are the same. A tape measure should answer your second question!

A tape measure works yes but in reality funny angles in either the car or the bonnet can catch you out  :smiley: I have measured but I would feel better if I knew someone had actually done it as it’s a 2 hour round trip  :driver:

Thanks for the fitment info  :happy2:

What I meant was, using a tape measure is stiff enough to experiment with the odd angles  :happy2:

Yes a bonnet will fit in the boot  with the seats folded flat.
