    Hiya Ollie and welcome to the forum. Nice car you are going for. Nice interior too! Is it manual or DSG?? Just check it doesnt have a coolant leak issue, some 2.0 tdis around that age and a bit younger did as some has porous heads. You shoul dbe ok, but worth checking it. If yours is the twin grill then you can update to the single grilled bumper but you also need the bonnet, fogs and fog surrounds too. Good luck with the car and post pics once you have it.

    Can be a wait to find the bits needed, they do crop up on Ebay esp if you dont have Xenons as you wont need the washer jet holes.
    It does look good when done and I enjoyed doing mine. Hey, enjoy your gears lol, I love my DSG but loved manuals too!

    Some guys on here have been selling the S Line front bumpers recently, check out the A3 8P part of the forum.

    Enjoy..
