Default WILL the XJ8, 08 bumper cover fit 04 XJ8?

Will the 2008 front and rear bumper cover fit on the 2004 XJ8? It looks like a direct bolt on fit, just add driving lamps. Am I correct? I may geta 04'this summer and freshen the look to the 2008 look.

Hi, yes it does.. I converted my 2003 Super V8 into the X358. Things to be aware of..
  1. Front Bumper isnt a straight swap. You will need in addition a facelft undertray and front wheelarch liners. Some work will also need to be done with the washer hoses
  2. You dont have to upgrade the wings at the same time
  3. The rear bumper is a straight swap - but you will need new bumper mounts - the new ones are longer. You'll also need to fabricate an extension to one of the holes, as they will not line up by about half an inch
  4. When you've replaced the rear bumper you'll want to do something with the exhaust tips, as they will look odd. - they dont stick out far enough for the new bumper.

They are the major points for the bumper conversion... :-)
