    S3 front bumper for A3

    I own an A3 with the old style front bumper (this one) and im desperate to try and get the S3 bumper put on instead.



    Ive read the website below and it says this 'kit' has all my needs, but i thought to get the s3 front bumper put on an a3 I needed to change my bonnet aswell?

    Anyone shed any light on this conversion thats had the work done?

    Thanks in advance

    Yep, you'll need a new bonnet. There's a really comprehensive post about doing this mod by PregnantnProud (can't remember exact spelling but think that's right!) - he has done this already so take a look at that. I'll try and find link later if you've had no joy.

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

    You will also need a slight more tweaking to go S3 but you get the idea of the work involved from his post.

    Looking on ebay, iv found this guy breaking an s3

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-S3-2008-B...d=p3286.c0.m14

    Gave him a ring and he said he would sell the whole front end for 2500 (lol.. moving on)

    Said he wud let the NEW S3 shaped bonnet for 300 and the older S3 shaped for 250. Is this around the right prices?

    Thats actually not bad a deal, they normally fetch 130-150 on ebay for a full set. They are 300 from Audi so 100% mark up isnt bad by his estimates!
