Hang on @TalonTsi90 and @jman1200 weren't the 2nd gens available in 2008 in UK? I thought they were and wouldn't that mean you could swap bumpers with relative ease? I didn't think there were any major changes between 2008 and 2009 in the 2nd gen.
Gen 1’s are interchangeable depending on which front bumper, if you are wanting to fit MPS bumper you will require a whole lot more parts than just a bumper, I’m in New Zealand and could get a 2009 Gen 1 but was a change over year here. Gen 1 to Gen 2 is a no go.
