    Ahh right, In that case its a no no unfortanatly....I thought you meant the 2001-2003 Facelift. There are some bumpers you can buy with a simular style to the new A3's but there not my cup of tea :s

    Anything is possible at a cost, but it's no bolt on.

    There are aftermarket bumpers that can give the look you want, search member Northenlights in the Pics section, he has a similar kit
