    Hi

    Have a 2004 2.0 fsi sport a3

    Had a front end accident, so need to repair the whole front.

    Want to do a facelift upgrade as i need to change headlights,bonnet and bumper anyway.

    I had factory xenons but these are now broken aswel.

    Been trying to find a 8p2 s line front bumper. Is a 2005-2008 the right one?
    Also what year bonnet will fit this bumper as im not sure if the shape changed again after 2008?

    Also my airbags didn't deploy as i had a airbag light on the dash. I believe there was a issue with the under seat connector.
    Will i need to reset my airbag ecu?

    Thanks

    Not meaning to be rude but this has been covered hundreds of times before, why not do a simple search for 'facelift upgrade' and see what appears?

    There was even a full guide at a stage.

    eBay is your best bet, just look for 'a3 breaking' or 'a3 front bumper' and you should be good to go.
