    Quick question - Are you able to put an 8P3 (mid 2008 onwards) S-Line rear diffusor like this one...

    Onto an 8P3 Sport like this one... (same age just going from Sport to S-Line)

    Not without modifications, the facelift ones are cut out & have locating areas to fit, prefacelift does not, the lower section is 1 piece, so you'd have to cut it out & bond it in place.

    But I was under the impression they were both facelift (8P3) cars?

    So it's a whole bumper change? I am surprised.

    Pretty Sure you can just remove the diffuser section and replace it with a Sline one as i have seen a fair few on eBay that are compatible with all 2009-2012 A3's and you can also see bumpers that are for sale that have the diffuser removed so it should be a simple swap.
