    Red face New Bumper?

    Following a slight incident involving some concealed traffic lights and the back end of a Ford Ranger Pickup truck, I now need a new front bumper...

    The car is a very late Black 2003 TDI QS (don't know the actual colour name) and the bumper has the covers for the headlight washers, but no actual washers.

    Anyway, as I like to turn this sort of thing into an opportunity, does anyone know if there are an decent front bumpers around other than the stock one? I like the S3 one, but I am not sure that it will look right without the s3 panels. Was there ever an s-line or votex front bumper which might fit?

    Are there any after market ones that are any good? I like stealth so something tasteful...

    Alternatly, if anyone has replace their bumper or has one stashed at home in tha garage they want to get rid of, I would be interested. especially if it is black...

    Cheers

    There are some A3s without xenons or washers but have the "bumps" on the bumper, dunno why though

    Heres some sites with aftermarket bumpers, most of them are a bit extravogant to me. There was a votex bumper wasnt very nice though.

    Turns out I do have the washers (see my stupid question thread) but I am unconvinced that they work...

    Having looked more closely at the front of my car, it is more than just the bumper that needs replacement (headlight, reinforcemtn bar, radiator mounts, top panel, etc) so I have decided to just get it dealt with through the insurance company. I have a tame bodyshop though, which is good...

    Thanks for the suggestions, but I agree they all a bit OTT. IMHO the A3 is about subtle understaement than in your face styling.

    Cheers
