    Just a quick question I'm unsure on, I currently have a pre facelift 8P3 ( double grill ) and I'm looking to go for the single grill conversion BUT I want no bump strips, ie. The smooth one. Do I just need the reinforcement bars, bonnet grill and fogs or do I also need to replace the wings for this? and what year is it from?

    Thanks!

    Clearly not read any of this thread. Your car an 8P1 if you want do the single grille conversion 8P2 you will need a bonnet, grille, s-line front bumper(smooth bumper no strips), grille, s-line fog surround & fogs. You dont need to replace the reinforcement bar you only do that if your doing the S3 conversion. And you dont need to change the wings only change them if your doing the newer facelift 8P3 with led drl. Get some photos up when your done
    To save confusion get all your parts between 2006-2007

    Ah thank you, I did make the effort to read all 6 pages but nothing covered my question in enough detail to make me take the leap if I'm honest. New to the Audi scene after previously being into vauxhalls. Rookie mistake on the 8P3 / 8P1 though I'll take that on the chin I suppose!

    No worries fella. the 8P2 conversion is a great mod and really updates your car. Will be worth it. Get some photos up once your done If you go on the ebay link i posted a link to an ebay advert a guy had a full single frame conversion for sale for £100something. May be worth seeing if you can get the bonnet

    What a great job mate I'm really impressed with your work and I'm planning to make exactly same as you did, just got one problem I don't have massive garage and tools to work so I was thinking is it any think that I would need to weld it or for example am I gonna need to drill anything in reinforcement bar or reinforcement bar fits exactly on 2004 body and then on top bumper?

    Thank you.

    Your car is a 8P1, Yes will need a new bonnet whether you pick a 8P2 or 8P3 conversion. You can do any conversion you like with a double grill, Standard, Sline, S3 or RS3

    Depends which year big grill you're referring to, but I assume 06-08 version, so only wiring consideration would be the fog lights as they use different connectors/pin ends.

    Classifieds and googling audi parts. But ebay is still your best best, you just have to be patient at times.

    Hi Guys,

    Looking to do a similar mod. . Will the following parts be compatible?

    The car is an 8p1 (double grill). Just removing the bonnet and bumper, leaving the 8p1 headlights on there. Will an 8p3 (2010) S3 bumper + grill and an 8p2 (2006) standard Bonnet all fit together like a glove?

    No.
    8p3 bumper will not fit without changing the whole front end.

    so... will an s3 bumper taken from a 2007 s3 fit the 8p1 with the 8p1 headlights and the 8p2 bonnet? i'm assuming a 2007 s3 is referred to as 8p2?

    Yeah it will, needs a little more work than an s-line bumper.
