    S3 rear valance

    Hi, I'm getting a late spec 3 door S line rear bumper, I'm told both the S line and S3 valances will fit this bumper?

    Can you check and give me the prices for the 2 valances, i need to make a decision!

    Thanks

    Cool. not too bad then!

    I see your A3 is pre facelift, did you have to change the bumper then I assume?

    well I have done the s3 front, currently doing the skirts, but rear I kept the sport upper part & just changed the lower valance for sline with TBar as s3 doesnt have that

    As far as i am aware, the pre facelifts and the early (05) facelift S lines had the standard bumper/valance. Only the 06 onwards had a different lower valance and that will only fit the specific S line/S3 bumper which you can spot easily as it doesnt have the rub strip in it.

    To put it simply, the valance with the grey bit on it doesnt fit the bumpers withe the rubbing strips, make sense? Doesnt to me! lol

    yeah but I've offered the sline upto the bumper you say & it seems to have the same lines & fixings as the prevous one, I'm gonna go check now as I'm sure it fits

    ETKA shows from 05-07 but I take that with pinch of salt TBH.

    Yeah I just compared the sline one & the old sport one & it has same lines & curves, only difference are it doesnt have any round loops to fix the parking sensors wire to given sline sensors are further up the sline bumper as the S3 is, but this is simple fix just cable tie to the plastic trims in same place anyway with some well positioned holes made into the inner lip, completely transparent as oem would be, but I'll update for sure when I've fixed into position so know if it is out by any measurements
