Ok thats good.. I just need to try and get hold of an s3 8p2 bumper and standard 8p2 bonnet . .Proving difficult for the bumper. . they all seem to be 8p3 on ebay. was it just 2007 models for s3 8p2?
Yeah the 8P2 bumpers are one of the hardest to find, type in S3 breaking on ebay. Took me about 6 months to find one at a decent price, But I was in no hurry. No mate, some are from 2006, 2007 and 2008 models, they are all the same, just make sure it's 8P2 S3 bumper
Amazing job. Id pay someone to do this conversion for me, looks tidy!
Not sure if you need a certain amount of posts in order to send PMs. Let me know if you've received it
Great thread chaps. I've just seen this as I'm collecting the parts now. I also have an Akoya Silver A3 and I'd love my car to look like the one above, though I'm not too keen on the amount of cash I'll have to spend.
I didn't know there were so many shades of Akoya silver! I hope the boot lid I've got coming is a match!
I have the following questions:
- when the car is 2006 - single frame(grill) do you need to change only the bonet and bumper (plus headlights) or something else too (for the 2008+ facelift?
- about the headlights - the 2008+ are with DRL/ LED lights, what adapters or anything else do you need to fit them?
- do you need to change also the side fenders?
Thanks in advance from Bulgaria
