    No thats for a 5 door and its still the old type! There are none on ebay at the moment, there rarely is to be honest.

    Also, if you cant tell the difference are you sure its worth changing? lol

    hope this helps out

    [​IMG]

    1. is a sport/ se bumper older style (see the bump strip on top of bumper)
    2. is the same as above BUT with a s3 lower bit, (not genuine but a company makes them for these bumper) will try find the link
    3. is a sline bumper (no bump strip at top of bumper)
    4 is a 09+ s3 bumper,

    to make (1) bumper to the (4) bumper you will need the upper bumper/lower bumper and the diffuser (3 parts)

    to make (3) bumper to look like (4) bumper you will need the lower bumper/diffuser (2 parts)

    oh and sorry for using some of the members photos here,(can delete them if any problems)

    I am sure someone just fitted a diffuser to there car though. said they had to do some trimming but apart from that straight on. Any ideas on how much the 2nd part would cost?

    NHN fitted an a s3 or maybe s-line defuser to an older style bumper. As said, needed bit of trimming.

    I have got to buy a replacement toe hook cover for my rear bumper, so might as well just get a new diffuser instead ~:)

    Would the lower part of picture number 3 (valance+diffuser) fit straight onto picture number 1 - or is that where NHN trim skills are required?

    Hi all,

    Can someone confirm whether a 09 s line front & rear bumper will fit on a 54 plate older style double grill front, sport rear?
    Is it a case of the same as the 2006 s line front upgrade of just bumper and bonnet or is it lights too?

    Thanks?

    Yeah i'm also interested in coverting the 8P2 S-line bumper into the S3 version as it looks horrible imo

    Part numbers would be great

    And anyone who fancies making a guide will have my love forever haha

    Maybe a stupid question, but to make Pic3 into Pic4 does any painting need doing or can you buy the part in the correct body colour?

    (This thread is so much easier to follow now there are some pictures.)

    Yeah I was having a bit of a hunt through old threads, I quite fancy an s3 rear, quite interested in finding out how much the non genuine valance is, could be a cheap n cheerful mod seeing as I've got the old sport style bumper...
