    Quick rear bumper question.

    Are the 8P 1/2/3 rear bumpers all interchangeable on a 3 door A3?

    I've seen a nice 8P3 bumper locally but not sure if it will fit my 8P1.

    Thanks!

    As above, but take note of the below if/when buying one...

    First 3 digits of part number: 8P3 is for a 3 door, 8P4 is for a 5 door..... AND 8P7 is for the cabriolet (be careful, there are a lot of cabrio rear bumpers floating around on ebay which are being advertised as 3 door!)

    The easiest way to tell the difference between the three different types is..... the edge which meets the rear lights is flat for a 3dr, whereas the 5dr has an angled bit, and the cabrio bumper looks like the 3dr bumper but has a screw hole either side of where the tailgate closes.

    3 door:





    5 door:





    Cabriolet:

    This is the one I'm looking at:

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    The seller is telling me it only fits a 2008 onwards, is he just wrong?

    As Ash says, the seller is wrong. It comes off of a 2008/2009 or newer car but is a straight swap on all models from 2003 onwards.
    Maybe he's getting confused with the front bumpers, which are only a direct replacement on 2008/2009 onwards models.

    The honeycomb effect inserts or the valance?

    Honeycomb about £120 depending where you get it and I think the valance are about £80-£100. Check with Dave @ Stoke audi
