    I think from split grill to Single grill you need new hood and wings but it can be done easily if you have these. You can get them cheap from brekers and eBay and sell yours for similar to what you buy the new ones for

    Hi mate

    Can be done! All you need is a new bonnet and new bumper and obviously the grill. Wont need new wings in less your going for the new A3 look MY09.

    Here two threads which will help

    Conversion from pre-facelift double grill bumper to facelift S-line bumper

    it does mount up n cost, also TBH there is little demand or resale value in the old shaped bonnet & bumper especially if its standard & not s-line.

    True, sold my old bonnet for 10 and the bumper/grille/fogs for 40 on the bay.
