    Which bodykit is this? Help please!

    Hi,

    I have an Audi A3 3.2 quattro on a 54 plate. Last week I hit a deer at 50mph... crazy thing ran out right in front of me, a lorry was coming the other way so I couldn't swerve. Unfortunately for Bambi, he died. Unfortunately for me, the accident did considerable damage to the car.

    The insurance repairers now claim that they cannot find a matching replacement bodykit for the car. Picture of the car is below, and a higher resolution image is here: http://www.pattmans.biz/car2.jpg. I'm also checking with the audi dealership that I got the car from - but have so far not heard anything.



    Any help would be much apprecaited.

    Many thanks,

    Nick

    unless they order the wrong parts... Thats how I ended up with an S3 tailgate on my old A3. I paid the extra for the spoiler and they sprayed it all together
