    you've got the S-Line spoiler (just have a look at any S-Line or S3 for that one), and a Votex one (both available thru Audi). then you have several aftermarket ones. not exactly sure who does them, but have a look at Oettinger, Abt and Caractere. tbh i wouldn't bother because an official Audi one shouldn't be too hard to find off eBay or at a breaker's.

    in regards to the rear bumper i reckon your best bet is a 2009 facelift one. as far as i'm aware they're a straight swap (just need painting) and aren't massively expensive. the S-Line diffuser trim (which is the best looking option imo) for it is tho. at a guess i reckon you should be planning to spend ~500ish for the rear bumper including painting if you want brand new parts.

    on the main forum go down to sponsors. there's a link there for "Stoke Audi". ask Dave on there. they give pretty good prices for a stealer.

    The s-line/S3 one has lugs that normally go through holes and is bolted onto the tailgate & the votex one is intended as an aftermarket option that just gets bonded on. They are pretty similar, the votex one has slightly squarer edges than the s-line/S3 one. Avoid any copies you find on ebay, they dont fit as well & are poorer quality reflected in cheaper price.

    As said, dont go the ebay route. They are all a poor quality fit and look exactly like what they are. Ebay tat.

    I presume your girlfriends car is a 3 door,as it is a 2004 model.

    Get a genuine one mate. As said, you will have to modify it slightly though to get it to fit to your tailgate, but it is very easy to do.

    It may be even worth consider buying a whole tailgate with spoiler attached. A lot of breakers wont split the spoiler of the tailgate as it is too much hassle,so I manage to find a few complete tail gates around the 90-100 mark all in. Doing it this way would then be the 100% correct way.

    However, it is just as good to modify and fit. This is how I did mine

    Just something for you to consider .

    ok cheers for that, does the rear lower valance off the sportback also fit the 3door? is there a front lower spoiler to fit to the facelift bumper?
