    Starting facelift conversion

    Hi guys,

    The time has now come to change the front bumper on my 04 - 3.2 quattro to the facelift version as at present it's really starting to look dated it's really bugging me

    My question is, I have o7 plate s3 front and rear bumpers will I need an s3 facelift bonnet or will any facelift bonnet do the job ??

    Also if any one has one for sale pm please!!

    You need any A3/S3 05 - 08 (8P2) bonnet. I think you'll also have to trim part of the front crash bar as well.

    Search for Sarah's A3's thread. She's done exactly the same conversion on her 3.2

    As Sub said you need an 2006-2008 8P2 bonnet. And trim your crash bar by 2x20cm
