    On the lower centre grille, you need some clips that hold it on - so just make sure they are included:

    The new part number for the Facelift 8L S3 Lower Front Grille Clip is:

    A8L9 807 807 (CLIP)

    Is the S3 bumper the same length as the A3 one? Thought that it's a little bigger due to the S3 having wider arches?

    Just thought I would add to this...I have recently fitted S3 front and rear bumpers to my A3 and did not require any new bumper guide rails, they just bolted strait on...no problems. I have a couple of pics in my photo album if anybody wants to see if they fit ok:thumbsup:

    Rear is very easy. Just make sure you pop it out at each side and it slides off.

    I'm thinking of getting a S3 bumper for my A3 8L, but I was wondering if it would look weird to just have the back bumper without the changing the front...

    anyone got any pictures? or have everyone done the two together?

    There are no gaps.

    The bumper sits over arch a bit more but its hardly noticeable.

    heres my car with few pics.

    first post but just wanted to say found this useful been trying to find a good audi site to use this seems the one!

    i have had a few cars now and now got a A3 tdi and converting it to s3 specs but obviusly keeping the engine etc maybe getting a remap...

    but i have currently fitted S3 boot, wheels, later doors... And have s3 wings, rear bumper and skirts to go on... so if i can take a few photos and help people out i'll try put some up as there seems to be NO direct guide to a conversion bar this one...

    cheers Ad

    ruairi83 - Have you fitted S3 skirts? not the trims the actual skirts? as it seems to me that the skirts are hard to fit ie the sills etc are totally different!?
