    Thanks guys
    This is what im thinking of doing:
    BBS LM reps, Facelift rear bumper, MY11 rear lights, Cupra splitter, S-line or Votex spoiler, Tints and coilys.
    The car has already been remapped according to the previous owner and the car does shift!

    LM reps are a big no no they don't last well they buckle easy too , my choice of mods would be black grills like mine , s-line spoiler , coilovers , my09 or my11 rear lights , cupra front lip , nice shiny oem 18's or 19's depending on budget

    I'd change the front bumper before doing the rear one bro. You should be able to find an 8p2 s-line bumper in that colour

    Coilovers
    18/19" BBS or Audi wheels
    Black front grill
    MY11 rears

    Done...
    For Sale -
    A3 rear wiper motor and arm
    A3 air vents
    56plate A3 S-Line full speaker system including amp

    I think I might just do that front bumper conversion now, what parts will I need to get?
    Thanks.

    Is your car just standard silver?? Like mine?
    If so, then I'd say go for MY09 rear lights instead of MY11. Before I bought mine I saw two silver cars side by side, one with MY09 and one with MY11 lights. The MY09 suited the colour a lot more. Obviously in my opinion.


    As for your mods... I'd recommend you do the 8P2 single grille s-line front conversion. The split grille looks cool when modded right, but if you're anything like me you'll get cheesed off everytime you see a single grille A3 pull up next to you.
    Also, do an 8P3 rear conversion. Not much point in doing the 8P2 s-line rear as you can get the same effect using an 8P3 rear bumper with a standard diffuser, or you can go a bit further and use an 8P3 s-line diffuser for the newer look.

    Then lower and wheels, and you'll be happier than a virgin getting his first dip.

    I really want to do the conversion now, but im finding it impossible to find the parts, thats both rear and front bumper. Theres too much choice i dont know what to get at times.

    Defo getting rare!

    FranA3....have you ever considered painting the piece of the bumper behind the number plate gloss black? so it seems like one big black square?
    I am considering this on my 3.2 split grille... (might have a different effect on mine as mine is lava grey with chrome surround on grilles and badges painted black) ????
