    I'm guessing this has probably been covered before, but I couldn't find anything specific

    I have a 2003 8p and was wondering what my front and rear bumper options...

    I would like a 2011-12 S-line bumper...like below

    http://www.ebay.co.u...w-/221265451102

    Would I just need to change the complete bumper (fogs, grill etc) and the bonnet?? or are the headlights/wings etc different? or does it even fit?

    Also rear bumpers, do all 8p ones interchange as long as its 3 or 5 door?


    Sorry for the noob questions!

    Thanks
    Pete

    Basically when Audi introduced the facelift in 2011, they significantly changed the front of the car.

    The headlights are a different shape, new wings and wing mirrors featuring the side indicators.

    Your best bet will be going for the 8P2 S-Line bumper as you'll only need to change the bumper, fogs and bonnet.

    My topic for my old car may help you.

    ^^^^^ Very good reply!

    With regards to rear bumper, the 2009-2012 S Line bumper will fit. Just remember that if you've got a 3dr then only a 3dr bumper will fit, a 5dr and cab one won't. And if you've got a 5dr, then only a 5dr bumper will fit.

    Thanks for the info guys, really helpful.

    As for front ends, would a 5 door one fit a 3 door?
