    S3 front bumper options?

    Basically without going into too much detail, I've had the front bumper ripped off my car. Totally gutted. Not my fault, nothing I can do about it.

    Just wondering what options I have with regards to replacing it? The bumper is probably a little too damaged to repair (cracked in a few places and all the fixing points have been pulled off on drivers side and middle) so other than audi is there anywhere I can get one from? Had a look on eBay and there's not much.

    How similar are the bumpers to s line ones? Would I need to change much if I went down the 8p2 route?
    As much as is like, I don't have the money to even consider rs3 front...
    current fleet:

    Silver 57 Audi s3 8p (weekend shrag)
    Hearse aka 02 black Rover 75 tourer (motorway mule, 170k still going strong!)

    Lovely gold 53 Rover 75 1.8 turbo which will be up for sale shortly if anyone knows someone who's interested

    If you go facelift you will need bonnet, bumper, headlights, wings and slam panel. Second hand parts of all of these tend to be expensive.

    You don't want to put a non S3 bumper on. Spoil the car!!

    Options left are:
    Audi (expensive)
    Breakers
    Ebay (Sometimes you have to wait a week or so for one to pop up)

    Thanks for that. I figured facelift conversion would be expensive...

    But your right. Can't believe I even considered putting anything other than s3 parts back on!

    I did see that one you posted the link of, but the damage put me off. I'd rather pay a little more knowing I'd be getting one in decent condition. I can wait a while because it isn't coming off so one in the right colour might come up.

    I nearly choked there... Thinking of putting a sline bumper on a s3!??

    Sline bumper would need headlight washers if it came off a car without auto levellers anyway! Madness man madness haha, glad you've seen sense tho in the end....!
