    That is some kind of hybrid S3/Standard/Sport bumper! The fog grille part of the bumper is S3 but the rest is a Standard/Sport bumper. Its been knocked up in someone's garage.

    Nope, the fog grilles not interchangeable. The standard and s-line bumpers are different.

    This shows it better:

    Standard:





    S-line:





    Now look at the bumper's shape, around the fog grilles in particular... there is a lip on the s-line bumper whereas the standard bumper is totally smooth.
    The whole fog grille cut-out is a different shape.

    Yep, but you've got to treat the standard and s-line pictured above as totally separate. Just as you would with an S3 grille etc.

    Out of interest. Does the grille from an s-line bumper fit a sport bumper and vice versa?

    Ever thought of getting the Black Edition, S3 or Titantium S3 grille for that Zak? Would look nice with the brilliant black colour. Doing the same with mine at the moment. PM me if you are interested.

    No.

    Think of the different models like this:

    Standard/SE/Sport all use the same front bumper, therefore all fog grilles will be interchangeable between each.

    S-line uses a different front bumper so only s-line fog grilles will fit.

    S3 uses a different front bumper so only S3 fog grilles will fit.


    Or are you talking about the main radiator grille???

    [-]The top bumper looks to be either a replica or foreign[/-] (edit: it's a standard\sport)! The car has LED headlights, but there doesn't appear to be any washers - which are fitted to all cars with factory LED's. The bottom one is the same as my '09 S Line ...again, minus the washer caps, so not for LED lights.

    Yeah definitely mate, would love the Titanium S3 grille. Nice little mod and not too pricey. You almost done yours? Think il hold out though, starting a new job soon so might be upgrading to BE S-Line, PCP permitting

    Think it means Special Equipment to be honest in terms of Audi and BMW etc... The SE models always had more toys on them over the standard models...
