    Angry AArrgg! Pesky Audi!!! Wrong Bonnet for conversion!!!

    About 2 months ago, managed to find a bonnet that was claimed would fit the single grill A3 (I asked a few times to make sure). The seller was Audi Boston, Lincs. They were selling it as they had wrongly ordered for a customer, it was brand new and they had painted it themselves but turned out to be the wrong one!!!
    Turns out its up to a 2007 but not the big grill!!! So if anyone want a Brand New Bonnet in Brilliant Red LY3J, Part number 8P0823029B, PM me.

    So back to square 1 for me on the bonnet front! and conversion on hold!

    Anyway, not put off but can anyone let me have the part number for the correct bonnet to do the conversion pls!

    Thanks in advance.

    I would complain at them and tell them to sort it! i was told by Audi Bexley that if audi sell anything that can damage your car then they are liable as they sold it to you. so as this is not the part you requested call them and have a go, if you get no luck ask for the parts manager and tell him the problem and see what he says. they should take responsability for it... not sure on what they can do for delivery though.
    I don't quite understand how it is the wrong bonnet though, i mean is it not the same bonnet on all 'big single grill' A3's? i thought it was the same even if its a 3 or 5 door a3?

    Well when we compared it to my current bonnet on Friday its identical! As we now have the new front end we also compared it to the grill thats going to be going on and it just doesnt fit! The same gap that my current bonnet would give! Just annoying as I finally thought I was there with parts. lol, typical.

    Will ring them tomorrow and see where I get.

    thanks for your replies

    If it was from ebay, you can always claim against them etc seeing they gave you incorrect information. How did you pay?
