    Sport to S-Line Convertion

    Hi

    I bought off EBay an S-Line front bumper for my A3. Now that I think back it didn't mention if it was for sportback or 3dr, dim I know. Is there a difference in size?

    Also does anyone know part numbers for the grilles at either side to hold the fog lights? And do I need new fog lights or can I use existing ones?

    Cheers

    i think the fulll grill frot bumper needs a new bonnet with it too

    the sport front bumper has a wider grill if you put them next to each other you will see the difference in size.
    now : A3 2.0 TDI, ST-3 remap, coilovers, matte black rs6 alloys

    800 spent on my car in a week, is that excessive? B***ocks is it

    No I've checked, the bonnet on the cars are the same.

    I've found that I do need new grills and fog's for the car too!!

    Also going to get the rear bumper and spoiler along with optics grill so it'll be a Sport in S-Line clothing haha!

    Just need the S-Line springs, or maybe others but not sure what ones to go for.

    Don't bother with the S-Line springs, the ride quality is absolutely horrendous !

    Whoever it was in Audi who designed the S-Line suspension should be fired for gross incompetence, as he clearly doesn't have a clue about suspension design !

    And leather S-Line seats (no chance, cost a fortune haha).

    I'd like the headlining though but would it not cost a fortune?

    Doesnt everything?! You also need sun visors, interior mirror and all A B and C post trims to do it properly. Kits do come up on ebay from time to time.
