    Is it just the trimming of the reinforcement bar and fog light wiring? or does anything else need faffing around with?

    Yeah the 8P2 bumpers are one of the hardest to find, type in S3 breaking on ebay. Took me about 6 months to find one at a decent price, But I was in no hurry. No mate, some are from 2006, 2007 and 2008 models, they are all the same, just make sure it's 8P2 S3 bumper

    Thread revival!


    Great thread chaps. I've just seen this as I'm collecting the parts now. I also have an Akoya Silver A3 and I'd love my car to look like the one above, though I'm not too keen on the amount of cash I'll have to spend.

    I didn't know there were so many shades of Akoya silver! I hope the boot lid I've got coming is a match!

    I have the following questions:

    - when the car is 2006 - single frame(grill) do you need to change only the bonet and bumper (plus headlights) or something else too (for the 2008+ facelift?
    - about the headlights - the 2008+ are with DRL/ LED lights, what adapters or anything else do you need to fit them?
    - do you need to change also the side fenders?

    Thanks in advance from Bulgaria :)

    Hi there
    Dose anyone know what i should do with the pipe coming from my 2010 headlight (my car is 2006 and has had a full facelift)

    There isn't any pipe coming from my old light and at a good guess i would say its there for a good reason ..(to stop them steaming up)

    Thank you for any info! :)

    Hope the quote works....on the 8P3 bumper, is there any way to use the older xenons from the 8P1? I don't like the 8P3 headlights tbh, also I couldn't see the part numbers listed for the 8P1 > 8P3 parts e.g the single grill, I presume its different to the 8P2 grill?

    Thanks
    Alex

    *edit: i've seen what jimbob? put above about changing everything*
    I tried to post the below picture, what specifically 8P3 parts do you need for this - e.g P3 grill and P3 bonnet or can I use P2 grill and bonnet as it looks different to the other 8P3 bumper I have seen earlier in this thread?
    [​IMG]

    I've bought the bumper in the picture ^
    Do I have to use the 8P3 headlights? I don't like them :(

    Thanks
    Alex

    you need the fog light connectors (and repair wires depending if you want to re-pin the connector or not)
    Part No. for the connectors is 3D0941165A

    is it the 08/09-12 bumper like the one in the image I posted as those use the later foglights from reading the thread

    From ETKA it looks like your foglights are part no: 8E0941699C and 8E0941700C but that's for a 2008 bumper as I understand
