    Cost to Facelift my A3 is this right?

    As the title says, I have been on the phone to Stoke Audi today to find out the costs of doing this:

    1 x S-Line Front Bumper Ł231.99
    1 x Optics Grille Ł109.93
    2 x S3 Fog Lights Ł57.35
    2 x Fog Plugs Ł5.72
    2 x Fog Repair Wires Ł5.00
    2 x Fog Surround Ł20.54
    1 x Bonnet Ł178.63
    1 x S-Line Badge Ł9.66

    Those are March 2008 prices taken from matandrew's thread, I don't think they are accurate now. Can anyone confirm if they are or not? I would also much prefer the S3 front but is the S3 Optics Grille as much as the bumper?

    Does anyone have the part numbers of any of the parts above as I have ETKA and I can look up the prices from there.

    Total cost according to those prices above is Ł707.43 without Paint which I am assuming would be around Ł100ish for the bumper and bonnet.

    Can anyone confirm this? How much cheaper will I get the parts being trade?

    TIA
    Joe

    I need one with washer jets for my Xenons and there never seems to be one on there, is that the right prices or will it be cheaper?

    i guess if you have been on the phone to Dave at Stoke Audi , then you now have the prices ?

    If you are trade then open an account at TPS http://www.thetradepartsspecialists.co.uk/whatIsTPS.php

    Discount depends on buyer power and how often , When you say in the trade , in which way ?

    ETKA as far as i was aware only shows the parts numbers and diagrams , no prices ... So you can get the part numbers from there as you have it.

    As far as paint work Ł100 sounds very very cheap , i would say Jo public would be paying Ł150 for a bumper and the same for the bonnet Total Ł300 , Trade then well the of course cheaper.

    You questions don't really make sense as , i thought with you being in the trade you would know all this.

    Sorry people, I really need to write a post all at once rather than come back to it. I have been on the phone to Dave at Stoke Audi, but he gave me no prices, he just told me it would cost around Ł800 (which seemed a lot) I am trying to get a rough estimate of price and as the post before this one says Ł5 for repair wires seems excessive. I work as an auto electrician, I have a VW trade account but unfortunately not Audi I do however get trade discount at my local Audi (they are however closed due to snow.) ETKA definitely shows prices I'm just not sure how up to date they are and its hard to cross reference with what is written above from mattandrews thread as I don't know the part numbers. As for the body work it is very cheap but he is one of my friends so Ł100 is about right. (Sorry I forgot to write that lol)

    I am trying to put together my plans for my car over the next six months thats all, I need to budget to do it.

    I hope that makes more sense.

    Don't all bumpers come with markings on the back marking exactly where washer jet holes should be? I was under the impression that for a body shop it was reasonably straight forward to cut holes in a bumper for washer jets... can anyone confirm?

    Yes. I managed just to remove the wires from the old plug & put them into the new plugs - cost = zero

    The fog lights are in excess of Ł60 each. I bought mine new from the bay (Ł72ish for the pair) not oem tho...
    I have a sport bumper, grill, fogs and fog covers (complete front end minus the bonnet) i'm about to sell if that helps? It doesn't have washer holes for your Xenons, but i'll check for the markings Helz mentioned

    Erm a S line bumper from Ebay ive seen for like Ł170 pounds. Not sure about the rest of the parts tbh. The rest of the parts shouldnt be too pricey if you use ebay. You can facelift for cheap if you find a goodbody shop that wont rip you off and get the parts yourself
