    bumper question

    Hi all, was wondering in order to change from a sports 3door 2004 bumper to a s-line 2006 bumper isit a straight swap or will it need a different bonnet?
    Also do the s-line models have different side skirts??
    Thanks

    The one piece grill... my current one is the standered 2 piece one which is on all the 2003+ models

    Didn't all the 2003+ cars have the single frame grill?
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    in order to change the bumper from a 2004 to 2006 you need the 2006 bonnet as well

    the skirts are the same for all 3 doors!

    the bonnet will fit but its just the hassle of finding an undammaged one, possibly painting it or buying new from audi

    no other adjustments as far as i am aware!

    they are wrong - next time you see a facelift A3 have a close look between the chrome on the grill and the headlight...the distance is different as well as the lines on the bonnet
