What year D8 up to ?

Post by dirtydirtydiesel » Thu Sep 06, 2018 9:36 pm

I know it probably sounds like a daft question but my 02 406 needs a new bonnet :roll:
It's been getting worse for a couple of years, well with the amount of work I've put into the old girl
I want to replace it.

So how to identify a Mk1 bonnet to a Mkll, the one I've been offered is year 2000 :roll:
So from what I know could be either :?
2002 110 HDi estate, Rapier in monaco blue! ( found quite a bit more power :cheesy: )
1999 3.0 V6 SE coupe in Diablo Red ( my baby )
2006 206 1.4 16v sport in Aegean blue ( wife's shopping trolley :roll: )

Hmmmm.
You should be safe with a year 2000 bonnet, as I think anything newer than a T reg is D9 ( some T reg could be either ) however Monaco Blue is a D9 only colour :cheesy:
1999 T4 family wagon
2005 Vauxhall Meriva
1998 406 V6 Coupe - Midlife crisis..!

Didn't know that mate, re Monaco blue :roll: but I think the bonnet I've been offered is China blue
So a respray is on the cards, can't find a Monaco blue one in good condition for love nor money :roll:
