    Up to and including 08. The newest is 09 onwards but be careful close to the changeover year as there could be an overlap.

    Yes you can fit the new bumper got it on my 3door. Just to save hassle look out for a bumper between 2006-2007
    You will need a bumper like this and remember the s-line is smooth with no strips and has two vertical bars under where the grille sits.
    You will also need foglights and foglights surrounds as you wont be able to use your current ones.

    just shows audi are improving the 8p3 standard bumper looks like the older sline 8p2 and the 8p3 sline i think looks like the older 8p2 s3. so at least you are starting to get more for your money now

    Are you 100% sure, it says 2007 in the ad which mean sit must surely be 8p2, it has the smooth fascia, the wider rectangles in the grille and the protruding lips either side.

    It's leaning forwards so can't make out the shape of the fog light area

    Yes go on audi or autotrader website and compare an 2007 s-line A3 and a 2009 standard A3.
    You should notice the difference straight away.
    8P2 S-line front bumper is not that square and there lip does stick out that much.
