    As far as I'm aware, you will have to change the bonnet for a 2005-2008 single grill bumper.

    Any rear bumper will fit as long as you get a 3 door bumper if you have a 3 door, 5 if you have a 5.

    As Wez said if you want the single grille you will need a new bonnet there no way around it. Done the single grille conversion myself.
    If you have a 3door any 3door 8P rear bumper will (BESIDES the convertible ones) and vice versa with the 5doors/sportback.
    Have a quick search both topics have been covered many times and there alot of threads going around with part numbers and prices.
    Good luck

    I hate the rear bumper too, I can't wait to remove mine for a newer one. (cough: Ash B, cough)

    Yea with the front bumper you will need just the bumper and bonnet. Or you could opt for the ABT ad on to your bumper :thumbsup:

    If you want to facelift it to 8P3 (2008-2011), then you would need, bumper, bonnet, headlamps, wings and mirrors etc.

    There's a very cheap mod you can do in the meantime, mod your grills and bumper to 'look' like a single grill.

    There's build threads and guides galore on all options, hit the search button.

    Here's one to get you going (hope you dont mind Sarah)http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/new-a3...l-conversion-done-v6-s3-hybrid-pic-heavy.html
