    Anyone know where I can source a facelift (2009) bonnet, new or used? Assume they are the same for all models (s-line, s3 etc) of A3 facelift.

    Aren't there three different bonnets?

    I know the bonnet changed shape from the 8P1 to the 8P2, which is probably what you're referring to when you say "facelift", as that's when it gained the single-piece grille and the leading edge of the bonnet changed shape as a result.

    I have the a feeling the 8P3 bonnet also changed slightly though. Not the overall shape of it but I think the creases which run down it are slightly different. Might be wrong though.

    Salvage or E-bay I guess on the sourcing...

    The 8P3 facelift bonnet from MY09 is the same across the A3 range.
