    If you don't want to drive your car there you're more than welcome to drive down to me and then jump in mine if you like.
    Have a think and just let me know mate.

    You never get to see your car on the move so its always nice when someone manages to catch you in motion.

    Next time you'll have to drive to London to meet us and then back to the show so we can take a few photos of yours on the motorway!

    looks really nice mate i'm impressed! nice write up too, and I agree it looks like it needs 10mm spacers maybe, but that said it looks sweet as is, and in a sad way i've always thought you should avoid spacers where possible!

    Thanks mate.
    Yeah everytime I look at the car I notice the rears sitting slightly further in than i'd like.
    I'm gonna leave it as it is a bit longer though, and if I keep noticing it then I'll stick some on.

    I'm trying not to become too OCD about my car at the moment, but the spoiler is already killing me. The fitters used a double sided foam tape to hold it in place so now there is a 2mm gap between it and where it is fixed to the tailgate.
    Drives me mad that it isn't perfectly flush and sits slightly high.

    Amazing what an extra few millimeters here are there can do.

    Yep, facelift standard/s-line rear bumpers really freshen up the back end.

    Hey guys, looking for a bit of help.

    My A3 is currently in a bodyshop recommended by Audi for the S Line front conversion. I shopped around and they quoted a very good price compared to some others, so the car went in last week.

    It's an 04 plate Sport with the split grill. I purchased a complete front S Line bumper from a 2006 car, and having got the inspiration from this thread, thought it would be a straight swap, along with a new bonnet..

    Today they have called and said that the bumper will not fit on the car, and that it's an issue with the cross beam..... As far as I know if you are going to do an S3 conversion you have to cut either side of impact bar (or whatever it's called), but this shouldn't be an issue with the S Line bumper. They have said they can take the cross beam off but I will apparently have to sign to agree to this? (Not gonna lie.. am not sure what they mean by a cross beam, lol).

    I'm heading over there tomorrow to take a look but would be good if anyone could give me some advice.

    Many thanks,

    Chris

    i think they are chatting sh*t... plenty of people are doing this upgrade from split grill to sline!
    do they know Audi cars or just some random body shop?

    It should all fit ok because, as you said, the reinforcement bar only needs to be trimmed when doing the S3 conversion. And even then I don't think the bar will stop the S3 bumper going on, just the fog lights. I'm not 100% sure on that bit though.

    Many people on here have gone from split grille to s-line with no bar problems. Get them to show you where this cross bar is preventing the bumper going on.

    Also, you might be better posting a separate thread about this. Your questions will probably get missed if you post them in here.

    Yeah sorry for hijacking your thread Ads - but I owe you a thanks really as the inspiration for the start of my mods! Will post some pics when I've sorted this issue out. Awesome car btw.

    Ash, the bumper is identical to what's on Ads car.
