    New bumper questions

    I am collecting my audi a3 sportback 2.0tdi with the DSG gearbox Monday, ImageUploadedByTapatalk1351378886.242576.jpg
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1351378901.529583.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1351378920.121902.jpg

    I like the bumpers that are on the car but there's something about the newer versions of the 8p that makes me want to buy one of them, would a front bumper from say a 10 plate fit it? I just like the more aggressive look of the facelift, and is there any mods I could do with the looks of the car? (Already purchased heko wind deflectors)

    I'd like to go for the more stealth look and keep with a black theme, any suggestions will be much appreciated thanks

    New bumper questions

    Congratulations on your new motor mate,if you wanted to fit a 8P3 bumper then i think you'd have to change the grille ,lights and hood aswell .It could turn out quite expensive but would look awesome afterwards .

    If you wanted to go on a more stealth look ,rear tints and a black edition grill would be the way to go .

    New bumper questions

    Will a black edition grill fit straight onto the original bumper? I was considering vinyl wrapping the chrome grill into carbon or something

    Yeah you can get black editions versions of the 8P2 grills but a lot of people on here have just either got them sprayed or plastidipped .You can take off the chrome grill surround and do whatever you want to it ,i think all black would look nice but carbon wrap could work too .

    If you search around on here there are a few people who have done the entire front facelift on the 8P2,you should take a look on ebay for the parts required as it will be hell of a lot cheaper than going through audi .
