    You do have to change the whole front end i know I have done this he has just cut out the holes for indicators on the new wings that's it, not a complete facelift doing it like that in my opinion.

    I think the reason this is a '2010 uplift' is because it's a Cat D! Surely front end damage? Then done it up a bit to bring the re-sale value up!

    Although, I do love Sprint Blue with the black wheels...

    If he has put the washers in they will work as I used to have factory bi-xenons and everything was plug and play and washers work just fine.

    It's a S3 so it would have had them out of the factory so no idea why he got a bumper without them could that be a s-line bumper not a S3 bumper as I thought all S3's had factory fitted xenons with washers

    Facelift snobbery! Lol

    If i was to facelift an A3, I'd keep the original wing mirrors and side indicators. Don't like the dumbo's.

    could you be arsed paying that then changing the bumper and washers ect. plus hasnt it got a $hitty stearing wheel?

    just checked its sline wheel ( though it was the old school one ) i think your right about the sline bumper tho.

    The headlight washer jets on facelifts are different anyway, you cant use 03-08 washer jets on a facelift bumper simply because they dont fit them to the bumper anymore, they're fitted to the headlight brackets now, so the bumper lifts of easier except for the fog connectors.

    As for the dumbos not folding in much, they fold in just past the wing width, which is the amount you need tbh as do the 2011's.

    I've had my 2011 mirrors sat in a box for who knows how long, just cant find time to fit them with work, kid, family illness etc, but fitting them to others, I do prefer them tbh, they look great & folding is very cool even if its a bmw copycat lol
