    8P1 bumper overhaul

    Afternoon all, thinking of smartening up my A3, going to start with the rear bumper. This looks pretty cheap:

    What other parts would I need to replace the 8P1 rear bumper?

    You're looking to replace your 8P1 rear bumper with another 8P1 rear bumper??
    Why not upgrade to an 8P2 s-line (2005-2008) or an 8P3 (2009 onwards) bumper??

    Have a look at my thread, I have just had an 8P3 rear bumper fitted.

    My SPORT to S-LINE Conversion (Part No's, Prices & Tips included)...

    Thanks for your help mate. The item I linked to said it was a 2008 bumper, so should be 8P2 shouldn't it?

    Having a look through your thread now.

    Sorry, I should've mentioned.......

    The 8P1 and 8P2 standard rear bumpers are the same. (only the front bumper is different on the 8P1 and 8P2).

    The 8P2 s-line rear bumper is different to the 8P1 standard bumper. (i.e. it doesn't have the rub strip on it, and the diffuser/valance is different).

    And the 8P3 standard/s-line rear bumper is different to the 8P2 and 8P1 rear bumpers. (but looks quite similar to the 8P2 s-line rear bumper).

    Then you've got the S3 rear bumpers which are different again!

    Hope that makes sense... lol.
