    Facelift S-line to S3 front bumper swap

    I'm thinking of chaning the front bumper of my s-line to an s3 bumper. Would I be right in thinking that this would be a straight swap with no trimming the impact bar etc?

    I've had a search around and cant seem to find a definitive answer. Thanks in advance!

    Facelift S-line to S3 front bumper swap

    Just in the middle of replacing the front rear and side skirts on my 09 3door BE my self mate.

    Having done the front bumper a couple of weeks ago from S-line to S3 I would say it isn't to bad. ill have a mooch for the guide I used it was spot on. But all you need is the bumper as Nigel said and a deep pocket cause its not cheep to do the lot!

    If your gonna do the rest such as side skirts then get your self a caramel wheel for removing the tape residue left. Nigel recommend it to me mate its a little belter!

    If your planning on doing it yourself here's the guide I used. Although its on the pre-facelift the method is the same.
