    HELP - Newby here requires front bumper advice...

    Hi there,

    Firstly, may I say this is a great site and have been browsing for the past couple of hours.

    I've had my 2005 single grill facelift A3 TDi less than a week when a "silly person" (clean version) failed to apply their handbrake therefore leaving their banged up old corsa to hit the front if mine! No damage to the grill but the bumper will need replacing.

    May sound like a bit of a silly question but can the bumper be replaced WITHOUT replacing the grill?

    Also if I wanted to upgrade to an s line bumper would it just be a case of swapping the bumpers or would I need to change wings, headlights etc? ( I do have Xenons) I'm happy with what I've got it's just if it's a quick fix for the s line then I may aswell seeing as I will be replacing the bumper as I do like the front lip spoiler.

    Here's the link from fleebay of the bumper I've seen...
    GENUINE AUDI A3 S-LINE FRONT BUMPER IN PRIMER | eBay

    I would be forever in your debt if you could help me out.

    Cheers guys

    Chris

    if you already have a single grill you can upgrade to sline bumper and keep your existing grill and no need to change wings etc.
