    Help! rear bumper needed

    Hello - I'm having trouble locating a rear white bumper for my A3. I'm trying to avoid paying official Audi prices but it seems no where has a white one in stock. I've been searching eBay for weeks but the only white ones they have are for the 5 door.

    I've attached a photo of what I'm looking for - can anyone point me in the right direction?

    that's a standard car (i.e. non S-Line) facelift, right?

    there's a breaker in Batley just outside Leeds that's breaking a white '09 3dr. i dunno if he still has the bumper in stock. tell him that the bloke who bought the mirrors and door modules sent you, and maybe he'll give you a better price. you shouldn't be looking to pay more than about 70 anyways. his number is:

    01924 444383

    best of luck

    Only thing i can think of is go Stoke Audi they are cheaper than other main dealers and all you would need is the rear bumper?
    As you can just put your valance on the new bumper. You will be lucky to find one on ebay in the same colour, plus the colour could be slightly out. Sorry to see the damage to your A3 and hope you get it sorted soon mate

    perhaps, but an hour's labour at an independent will be around 50 + VAT, and then you've got the materials to pay - if a white bumper costs 70ish anyway you're quids in

    yep agree with the above, i had a similar prang. have you tried to push the corner out by hand? this helped me, as it went back into shape'ish, then the body repaired and painted the bumper. job done!!
