    Show us a pic of your current front end.

    Bumper will fit fine, grill maybe would look odd unless fitting S3 one, fog surrounds will fit fine if fogs are same, hence why pic requested, no need for new arch liners.

    Its not hard to do, just takes little time, easier to take wheels of but can get behind headlight by turning wheels full lock, to remove the bolt behind there that holds bumper on, a load of torx bolts down the liner, under car & then the longer ones on top of the bumper when bonnet lifted.

    You will need,
    S3 bumper
    S-line/S3 fog lights
    Fog light plugs and repair wires.
    I don't think ur grille will not fit without modification, the S3 grille is shorter than yours.

    Yeah S3 grill is shorter so new grill would be required...

    I've done the 8P2 really easy, I want the 8P3 next. Can I DIY the whole thing? My 8p2 s3 bumper might be for sell soon :)
