    Is there anybody around the surrey area who is willing to do this for a reasonable rate ?

    I've got an 04 FSI which has the bumper & bonnet stonechipped to death & this would be the ideal replacement.

    hi, sorry if this is a stupid question but am i right in thinking that the s-line and s3 grills are the same size? for example you could fit an s-line grill to an s3 bumper and an s3 grill to an s-line bumper??
    regards

    Yes its same size, just a different number of slats on the front of grill from what I remember, if this weather stops being a hurricane I'd finish my s3 skirts aswell.

    The S3 grill is smaller in height than the sline so you would end up with a gap at the bottom and the fixings are slightly different

    Hello all, I have looked hight and low for someone that knows what they are talking about in refrence to upgrading the look of the pre facelift 8p audi. am I right in understanding that you can upgrade the pre face lift look (ie double grill shown at the begining of the thread) to the S3 front end? If you have done it can you detail it as efficiently as the face lift upgrade. thank you for your help guys.

    welcome to the forum, I've done the s3 front/sides but read the thread fully as Matt has detailed most of the work with S-Line kit that needs doing.

    Are the prices in the thred from audi direct or via yourselves at trade? are you able to get them at trade? side skirts look wicked to, audi skirts? only just got my a3, much nicer than my lexus B4. can you view each others car profiles? wanna see every1's handwork.

    Its the same to do the S3 front as my sline as the s3 bumper uses all the same mounting point. You need to use the S3 bumper , fog grills and main grill


    As Hobden says most is in the thread above

    if you read the post with the prices it says Audi retail

    The side skirts are the votex ones from Audi, the s3 one are more work as NHN will agree

    Yeah you could say that, lol. price seemed to escalate daily, but got done just the same, think sides cost more than the front, ok not quite as much but man shocked me when I totalled up.

    I was watching it but decided not to bother as the damage looked quite bad. £100 inc P&P for a bent one or £250 for a new one? No contest really...

    Glad you got them sold. Is an expensive upgrade for me do to all the rest of the stuff I'd also need. Just sold my old 1998 A3 for £1800 (finally got round to selling it!!!), might put some of that into my current a3.

    Has anyone found a source for the front foglights for 2007 S Line, other than the main dealer, £57 each seems a bit steep.
    Thanks

    out of interest, how much is a front bumper for an S3 nowadays, last I remember they were about £230ish? Surely less than £1400????
