    8P2 S3 Valance and Diffuser

    How hard are these to come by? Can I order them direct from Audi?

    Want to get them for my 8P2 S-Line

    Thanks, but that's helluva lot of money. I only need the bottom sections

    Hi guys, sorry to bump this but I really need answers

    I was led to believe on this forum that the valence and diffuser are two separate pieces that need to be bought separately

    However, a local parts supplier is adamant that they are one piece and did not become two pieces until the 8P3 honeycomb type diffuser. I showed him the picture of the car posted above and he is positive that the valence/diffuser are one piece

    I called Audi to try and get confirmation and they were less than useless. They said that there are 4 or 5 different diffusers that it could be but they think that they know which one I wanted, but they couldn't be totally sure. To be sure though, they had to order it in.... and get this, if it isn't the right diffuser I still need to buy it, because they don't accept refunds on this type of order. What a joke.

    I asked if I could at least have the part number of the diffuser in question so that I could cross reference with you guys on here to be sure it was the correct one before ordering, but they refuse to give out part numbers - apparently they're sick of people phoning up for part numbers then going somewhere else to buy the parts. Again, what a joke.

    So please guys, if anybody knows the part number I would really appreciate if you could post it for me!

    My friend at audi has just ordered me one, the new style one he has got in is definately 1 piece as i have seen it and lined it up against my 8P2 Sline rear bumper, however i think the older ones might be 2 piece but not 100%

    Think you may have that the wrong way around mate. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding these! lol

    From what I've gathered today (though I could very well be wrong), the whole lower section of the bumper on the pre-facelift S3 is one piece;





    Then we had the facelift, where the lower section of the bumper and the platinum grey diffuser itself became two separate pieces that need to be purchased separately;





    That's my understanding anyway, from Lee_Rs posts in this thread - Will s3 2010 rear valance fit this rear bumper?


    EDIT: Another helpful thread, for people who may be as confused as I was Sline rear to s3 rear diffuser switch?



    I've ordered the one piece valance/diffuser seen in the first picture and I'm collecting it tomorrow.... I'll add the part number when I get it for future reference for people searching

    Just picked up my diffuser

    As above, the pre-facelift S3 diffuser is one piece. It comes in a platinum grey finish. The top section needs to be sprayed to match your car, the actual diffuser section can either be left platinum or sprayed a colour of your choice

    This is the part number I used to order - 8P3 807 434 G 1RR

    It was £100 inc. VAT from TPS

    Just to be clear, this is the diffuser in question;

    Well done for clearing up mate, although the one my guy showed me was definately the newer style and was one piece so maybe there are a few different variants?
