    As above really, did you buy a bumper with the headlight washer hole already cut or can you/bodyshop cut it in?

    Ive found an s-line front bumper but it doesnt have the washer holes, dont know whether to buy it or not...

    Try going S3 route? Or have a word with your body shop. Unless done right, it'll always look wrong.

    as watty says, it can be done and there is marks for guides when cutting, so either go audi or buy an s3 bumper

    S line from Audi is about £225 with cut outs or second hand s3 front bumper off ebay, but then you'll need different gril, fogs, surrounds, backing fogs surround...
