Hi mate,
the bonnets are the same size, just the arch panels are wider and the front bumper is wider too in order to match the flow of the arches,
but the bonnet is the same as the one you currently have but it has the vents in it,
it may be cheaper to purchase the vents and fit them to your existing bonnet, this way may save you money on shipping and body shop costs.

spray them gloss black,
give the same effect and no rain getting in to your engine bay or spark plug ignition leads.

thanks for the link Lenny, but they seem a bit to squarish to me. i though the engine cover would be fine to protect from rain, if not then fake vents will do!

if you have the engine cover then it should be fine mate,
i dont know if the open vents would effect your engine with rain at all, i just thought the less moisture that gets in their the better, because when driving at speed the open vents will be vacumme and the hot air will be expelled from the rear of the bonnet on to windscreen and up over the roof of the car or out to the sides,
all good stuff mate, but just the rain would get in too, and they do look a little square but their may be other replica vents available.

its your car though mate, and the bonnet you linked will fit it perfectly.

i may have to go the cheap option and cut holes into the bonnet - i did this in my Golf Gti MK2 using a jigsaw! simples.
