I have an 06 C4 Coupe VYR HDI,,
The front bumper looks like previous owner has used a brillo pad on it, now am bored of seeing them,
think maybe replace front bumper, will the facelift one fit as it the main one i can find,

thanks Frazer

Long story short... No.

It does fit, but it requires the facelift bonnet too as it's a different size. The chevrons are at a different height.

Just get the bumper polished up. Will get rid of the scratches and swirls.

I think the head lights are a different shape as well.

It was only when the New C4 was launched that they changed, original and 2008 facelift are the same

I think it had been mentioned before but the Chinese facelift model has the same bonnet size and its bumper would fit onto yours, giving you the facelift look...

But tbh the hassle involved, just get a respray if it doesn't polish out

Sorry to post on such an old topic but my question is the same: is there any way to find the China facelift front bumper to upgrade the MK1 C4? I own the VTS 180 and i don't want to lose the light aluminium bonnet just for the facelift look! Any information to this? Thanks anyway!

You could ask Citroening to have a clase look since, I believe he currently has both. This is his thread showing both cars together. The bonnet looks the same to me. - Click Here -

@FakeConcern: The black one is not the Chinese version. The bumper chevron is at the middle of the headlight not at the bottom. It is the known European facelift but as BioHead said I've to change the bonnet too, which I don't want to due to material..

It will be a nice upgrade, don't you think? Easy (no modifications needed) and, I believe, at least cheeper than the genuine Citroen bodykit.. I'm talking about this: - Click Here -

Quite correct, both facelift and pre-facelift are here...

That is quite bizarre that Wikipedia linked C4...
