    Short answer - no they won't. You need to replace most of the front end for it all to work.

    You can put the 8P2 front end on tho (2005-2008). You'll just need a new bumper and bonnet and grille. You can reuse your existing headlamps and you only need to change the foglights if you go S-Line or S3.

    There's a lot of threads on this. Please search before you ask questions in future. You'll just annoy people otherwise

    Grumpy git! ^^^ Lmfao.

    No not straight forward pal. As said, you will need to replace the whole front end pretty much and also fabricated a few bits.

    It is possible though, and requires time, knowledge and lot's of wonga

    thing is we need someone who's done the 8P3 conversion to actually commentate on how hard it is and what's involved
