    Hello all, I'm new and don't know anything about cars.

    I'm not asking you to sell this, but if you we're to, how much would you be looking at?

    I'm just trying to get an idea on price, because I've been looking at a3's an that s-line bumper looks amazing.

    Great job mattandrew.

    Apologies for digging up an old thread but I have a bit of a nooby question to ask to which I think I already know the answer but as it isnt explicitly stated anywhere I though I best be sure...

    Is there any difference at all in fitment between an 8P2/2005-2008 S-Line 3dr / S-Line Sportback (5dr) bumper?

    Cheers all!

    The fact that Audi know the black optics grill will be more desirable and hence sting you on the price

    One more question, is A3/S line single grill slightly bigger than S3 single grill, or straight swap? Thanks again!

    Yep, the S-Line/A3 grille is slightly larger than the S3 grille so no, not a straight swap. You'd need the S3 bumper for the S3 grille.

    I'm confused! If you want the S line look then why are you asking if those bumpers on ebay fit when they are both just the standard versions?

    No they are both standard bumpers, people just put " s line " in the header so it comes up in the search. Also between 2003 and 2006, S lines had the same bumpers as the standard cars! Only post 2006 did they differ which is the look I assume you are after? If you cant tell the difference between the 2 then why bother changing them at all!?

    To help you out the S line ones dont have the trim line around the center of the bumper, the fog grilles are a lot bigger and there is more of a lip on the bottom edge. If you look at the pics in the first page of this thread you will be able to see the differences and know what to look for on Ebay.

    Erm yea, but im not sure what parts to buy etc. In this thread seen alot of peeps who seem to have garages and are doing the conversions themselves. So just wondering if there is anyone who could do the lot for me for a decent price. I think I have the split grill so just looking for advice on where to start. I.e. do I need to by a bumber and bonnet of a later model?? And will these parts fit??

    You will need a new bumper, bonnet and grill if you want to do the front single grill conversion. Parts can be found on Ebay but not overly often or you can go to Audi for parts but obviously alot dearer!

    I'm doing mine very soon but loads have already done it.

    the only sline part you need are the fogs bumper and grills, this being said you may use s3 fogs. further to this any single grill bonnet will fit with the sline bumper

    Ok so just to be absolutey sure. I have the 2L tdi, s line, a3, 2005 model. Preface lift so 2 split grills. I'm after the one grill look. So I need to get a 2006 s line bonnet and a 2006 sline bumper and grill??? And these items will fit properly onto my 05 model?? Does it have to be sline or can I get the bumper and bonnet for any later model than my own as long as it's from a one grill model??

    Be careful as the bonnet you have runs approx. to Apr 2007 and changed after this. The part no. for the bonnet you need is 8p4823029b

    The bumper and grill is 2006/7 and some of 2008 and can be S Line or S3 but will also need the fog lights and surrounds for these bumpers as they are different to the ones you have at the moment.

    If you a want the facelift look (2009), you will also need to change front wings and headlamps but is a lot tougher as a guy on here is doing it at present

    Hope that helps.

    The bonnet I was referring to does run until Apr 2007 (which was the 3 dr). The SB (5Dr) came out straight away with the single grill, never a double. Hence why some bonnets run to 2007. I was quoted this by someone off here who works for Audi, unless hes wrong!!!

    There was the twin grill (ours) then it changed to the single grill then the facelift in late 2008/2009. But there is some confusion (as I found out to my cost) as the 3dr does run longer with the twin grills.

    As I said the correct bonnet for single grill is 8p4823029b
