    The S3 has wider flared wheel arches. The bumper may physically fit on the mounts above and below the radiator, but at the edges it fastens to the wheel arch liner which yours may or may not have. You might have to pull the bumper in to get a good fit. Perhaps someone else has tried this and can comment further.

    At the very least i imagine it'll need differant mounting guides and wheel arch liners.

    Also the bumper is definately wider due to the wider wings of the S3 so i've no idea how well it'll actually fit. I have seen a couple of photos of A3's with the S3 bumpers on so it is possible.

    If you can wait half an hour i'll be home and will check parts numbers on ETKA for the two bumpers and see if i can work out what's differant.

    sorry dude, my copy of ETOS isn't letting me in

    must have been time limited and my bro has the original disc.

    The audi dealer from whom you are buying the bumper has access to the same system and will be able to tell you what you need..
