    S Line front end conversion - 5 door bumper on a 3 door???

    Hi all,

    I know this topic has been talked about alot on here but im looking at putting an 06 s line front bumper onto an 04 plate A3 and was just wondering if anyone knows if a bumper of a 5 door (or sportback) will fit onto a 3 door?

    thanks

    The fronts are the same, only the backs are different

    Thanks for the response, its much appreciated.

    I ask because I recently bought an 06 s line bumper off ebay and when I have come to check the part number it differs from the one Audi have given me for a 3 door model so I am thinking the one I have bought is off a 5 door. My car is a 3 door so I wanted to be sure it would fit before I have it resprayed, I was going to do a 'mock-up' this wkend to see if it would fit but I think you have just saved me a job!

    cheers

    cheers
