    A3 S-Line Front Conversion

    I have a single frame 8P A3 S-Line(2004). Im looking to upgrade the front end to a 2006 S-Line. I know this topic has been covered before - but I just wanted to confirm if i actually need the front reinforcement bar?
    I am currently going to source:-
    s-line bumper
    big grill
    fog grill inserts - will my old fog lights fit?
    bonnet
    Have i missed anything else?

    You can trim/modify the existing re-inforcement bar yourself or buy a new one and no your old fog lights wont fit - you will need new fogs - S-Line fogs.

    Hope this helps

    Oh, you will also need fog repair wires and new fog plugs - like N8 said, all covered in Mattandrews S-Line conversion thread.

    Good luck.

    Incorrect, You only need to do that when fitting an S3 bumper. The S line bumper fits on no problem with the early reinforcer.

    Hope this helps

    Ah my bad, I thought you needed to trim it on all 8P1's when moving to S-Line or S3 regardless... I'll find out for sure in a week or so

    Thanks for the help. One final question:- Do I need S-line fogs lights or are they same across the facelift range?
