    I'm thinking of chaning the front bumper of my s-line to an s3 bumper. Would I be right in thinking that this would be a straight swap with no trimming the impact bar etc?

    I've had a search around and cant seem to find a definitive answer. Thanks in advance!

    In future please advise the cars details like year etc when asking for advice :)

    Just in the middle of replacing the front rear and side skirts on my 09 3door BE my self mate.

    Having done the front bumper a couple of weeks ago from S-line to S3 I would say it isn't to bad. ill have a mooch for the guide I used it was spot on. But all you need is the bumper as Nigel said and a deep pocket cause its not cheep to do the lot!

    If your gonna do the rest such as side skirts then get your self a caramel wheel for removing the tape residue left. Nigel recommend it to me mate its a little belter!
