    Hi, im just wanting to know if there is a place i can buy a front bumper for a 1999 reg a3 that looks like the new facelift 8p front bumper with the big grill? as i love the look of them but can't afford to buy a new one!
    thanks

    It'll look like a pigs ear, If you fancy something different try hunting out an S3 front bumper...

    I was looking into getting a rs4 style bumper or some rs4 vents put into my standard s3 bumper. They both look pretty awesome! Apparently the fit of the rs4 style bumpers are poo so I decided against it in the end

    wont really look right, you would need to change the bonnet too to meet up with the lip of the grill.
