Default bumper replacement

hey friends! will series 1 or 2 bumpers bolt onto a series 3? I prefer the older bumpers personally and want to know hoe easy/difficult it is before I go ahead and attempt it.
cheers

I reckon you you should put series 1 lights and bumpers on everything including F-type-R's.
Just don't know how they will go bolting to plastic.

Series 1 - No, the bumper is mounted a lot lower, and the front of the hood is much deeper to compensate.
Series 2 - Probably. I t hink the Series 2 wing has a hole for a lamp that the Series 3 wing doesn't have but not sure as it was a long time ago.
