    Damaged Front Lip

    OK So this has made me really angry and I hope it doesn't cost me an arm and a leg but wondered if someone could give me a rough idea of cost as I'm sure it has happened to other people as well as me!!

    Going slowly down into an underground car park and scrape! but it didnt just scrape its taken a chunk out of the front lip!!

    Any chance of a picture of the damage mate? I had a similar thing happen on one of my previous car (SEAT) and I had to have the front bumper repaired and resprayed - cost me around 250, likely depends on the damage and the area affected. Really frustrating though

    Sorry to resurrect this thread almost a year after the last post was made on it, but just in case anyone else needs to replace their facelift (April 2008 onwards) S3 centre front lip, the part number for it is -

    8P0 807 110E

    My existing one was quite badly stone chipped on the nearside, so Dave at Stoke Audi sorted me out with a nice new one, which I received today. I don't know exactly how much it cost as I bought other bits too, but think it was around 40.00 GBP.
